    Dear friends,

    It is with the saddest heart that I pass on the following. Please join

    me in remembering a great icon.

    The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and

    complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

    Doughboy was buried in a lightly-greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities

    turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry

    Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and

    Cap'n Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours as long- time

    friend, Aunt Jemima, delivered the eulogy, describing 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 not

    considered a very "smart" cookie, wasting much of his dough on

    half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he -- even

    still, as a crusty old man -- was considered a roll model for millions.

    Toward the end, it was thought he would rise again, but alas, he was no


    Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough; two children, John Dough

    and Jane Dough; plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by

    his elderly father, Pop Tart.

    The funeral was held at 3:50 for about twenty minutes.
