A friend sent met this one and I’m posting for all of you Dough Rollers – LOL. This one’s for you. (Sorry I don’t have the original credit for the content – if you know who it is, let me know!) For all you dough rollers …
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. 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, 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.
Dough, like life, is about more than money. Financial literacy is key to having a better chance in life. If learning about money is fun, as it is in my world and my “Can I Have Some Money?” curriculum… the learning is easy. It helps if we can laugh along the way, smell the roses and bake a few cookies. If you smiled, please rise to the occasion and pass it on to someone having a crumby day and kneads a lift!
