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 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.
“God gave you a gift of 86, 400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘Thank you'”? (William Ward )
Lord, every single gift comes from You…“Lift my gaze to see life from Your perspective. Help me to understand-and treasure-every good thing You send…”(From James 1:7) One Thousand Gifts http://www.aholyexperience.
I have just started to memorize and meditate on Psalm 34 in NKJV. This is what I have down so far:
New King James Version (NKJV)
I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.
I looked at Psalm 34:1-3 in the KJV, The Message, the Amplified Bible, The New Living Translation, NIV and combined them for me to think about it some more and personalize it for myself:
Be humble and confess your pride. Even if things aren’t going well, and you are afflicted, or feeling helpless hear this, take heart, be happy, be glad, rejoice:
together let’s get the word out and exalt His name.

You are treasured.
You are loved.
You are His. “
