I received this obituary today. I thought that others might want to look 
at something on the lighter side.

Happy Labor Day!

Tom, Redding CA - #216 D/GCC

It is with the saddest heart that we must pass on the following news.

Please join us in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community:

The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and
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 Cap'n Crunch.

The graveside 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 not considered a very 'smart' 
cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a 
little flaky in his youth and a crusty old man, he was considered a roll 
model for millions. Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough; two 
children, John Dough and Jane Dough; plus the bun they had in the
oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 350 for about 20 minutes.
