One of my favorite forms of humor is word play. And this one is "filled" with it.

Funeral Notice

It is with the saddest heart that I must pass on the following

The Pillsbury Doughboy dies 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. 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 flakey at times he
was still a crusty old man and was considered a roll model for

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John
Dough and Jane Dough, plus they have one in the oven. He is
also survived by his elderly dad, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

I'm sure the poor guy was pretty baked at the end.

Well Done!

In his younger days he was a warm hearted softie and people were always buttering him up.

Ya know, I heard he was headed for trouble, no doubt with one of his half-baked schemes. I knew his time was up when his hard'n crusty friends urged him to turnover a new leaf.

Is it true that they laid him out on sheets of parchment?

They called him Dill...
