The VA (Veterans Administration) recent issued the following sad bulletin:
We regret to announce the recent passing of the veteran Pillsbury spokesman Pop-N-Fressh Doughboy. His death was attributed to a severe yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly.
Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin, and the graveside was piled high with flours. Dozens of celebrities were on hand, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker. the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch.
In her eulogy, Aunt Jemima described Doughboy as "a man who never knew how much he was kneaded." Doughboy rose quickly in business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. Not a very smart cookie, he wasted much of his dough on half-baked schemes. A crusty old man, and a little flaky at times, he was nevertheless considered a positive roll model for millions.
Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, his son John Dough, and two daughters, Jane Dough and Cookie Dough, plus 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.
