A little smile for you...



I received the following ditty from my sweet friend, Susanne. 
We all got a kick out of it. I thought some of you might enjoy it, too!


Sad News

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 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
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.
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 was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

If this made you smile for even a brief second, please rise to the occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with some-one else who may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift!


(I say lets all pop open a can a Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, bake them up hot and fresh, and slather them with butter in honor of the Doughboy!)

  1. I'll have to head out to the grocery and grab some crescent rolls. They are my favorites. Sorry I haven't been to visit for a while but I have been sick for the past few weeks. It's good to have you back sharing with us! Hope all is well at your house. :)
