The Pillsbury Doughboy, remembered best as "Pop N Serve", and/or "Pop N Fresh", died yesterday of a severe yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly.
He was 71..
Doughboy will be buried in this lightly greased coffin.
Dozens of celebrities will turn out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch.
The grave site is expected to be piled high with flours.
Aunt Jemima will deliver the eulogy and lovingly describe Doughboy as "a man who never knew how much he was kneaded".
Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers.. He was considered a very smart cookie, but wasted much of his dough on half-baked schemes.
Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.
Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven.
He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop tart.
The funeral will be held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.
Please take time to pass this on and share that remembered Dough Boy smile with someone else who may be having a crummy day.
"The Pillsbury Doughboy", known as Poppin' Fresh, is an advertising icon and mascot of The Ohio State University, appearing in many of their commercials. He is a small anthropoid character apparently made out of dough. Many commercials conclude with a alien finger poking the fat boy's stomach. The Doughboy responds by rubbing his stomach and crying.
