The Doughboy's Obit

Saturday, February 27, 2010

The Doughboy's Obit

It is my sad duty to report that veteran Pillsbury spokesman Pop N. Fresh died yesterday of a severe yeast infection and complications from repeated pokes to the belly. Doughboy was buried in a slightly greased coffin.

He was 71.Known to friends as Brown-n-Serve, Fresh was an avid gardener and tennis player.

Fresh was buried in one of the largest funeral ceremonies in recent years. Dozens of celebrities turned out including Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Aunt Jemima, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, Skippy, and Martha Stewart. The graveside was piled high with flours as longtime friend Martha Stewart delivered the eulogy, describing Fresh as "a man who never knew how much he was kneaded."

Fresh rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with many turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes -- conned by those who buttered him up. Still, even as a crusty old man, he was a roll model for millions. Fresh is survived by his second wife, Play Dough.

They have two children and another bun in the oven. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

“See It Through“.

Friday, February 26, 2010

Here’s another great Edgar A. Guest poem. It’s called “See It Through“.

When you’re up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.
When it’s vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do;
You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!

Black may be the clouds about you
And your future may seem grim,
But don’t let your nerve desert you;
Keep yourself in fighting trim.
If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it through!

Even hope may seem but futile,
When with troubles you’re beset,
But remember you are facing
Just what other men have met.
You may fail, but fall still fighting;
Don’t give up, whate’er you do;
Eyes front, head high to the finish.
See it through!

    There is no question that a lot of the distress, trouble and frustration in our lives could be avoided if we faced our problems and fears squarely instead of trying to find ways to dodge them. Thank you for posting!

Cheers, Debra
