Bake at 350... a cute story!
A good friend of mine sent this to me and I HAD to share this will everyone...
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 gravesite 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.
His wife Play Dough, three children, survives doughboy: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. His elderly father, Pop Tart, also survives him.
The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.
Hope you all enjoyed!!
The last line was my favorite part! HA
