Cute Joke About the Pillsbury Doughboy

Post by Linda O'Donnell » Sun, Sep 16, 2018, 6:53 pm

This has nothing to do with religion, but I think it's very clever and cute. I originally saw it on a food blog, but I copied it from a Reddit post because they seemed to have the best version. Here it is:

SAD NEWS FROM MINNESOTA

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 51.

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 Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Born and bread in Minnesota, 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 still was a crusty old man, and was considered a positive roll model for millions. Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough and 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 was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

If you smiled while reading this, please rise to the occasion and pass it on to someone having a crumby day or kneading a lift.


Note: If you don't know who the Doughboy is, here's a sample of one of Pillsbury's earlier commercials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBPrPj-EiSQ.
