Pillsbury Doughboy, now dead?

Foodfuser and his avatar refuse to acknowledge it.

Yet it's right there on Facebook: Dawson Sather.

    1. That can't be true. I just received an e-mail from Pillsbury today and it had this image embedded:

        Yep, that was the cheap bounty that they had out on me.

        I'd hoped it'd be higher, just by longevity of service, and also fermentation.

          Well it should at least inspire some waxing rhapsodic.

        2. I heard it was a severe yeast infection.

          1. Rest in Peace, Doughboy. Too bad you never knew how much you were kneaded.

              Thank you, Gio. Actually, the kneading was marvelous. But one thing that got me was those whacks on the countertop to open my cylindrical cardboard can.

                Ah well, that's what comes of being know as "Pop N Serve". Folks simply like an urban legend. Here in Chowland you will always be remembered as a smart cookie even though you were a little flaky every now and then. Still, you will remain a roll model for millions for all time.

                1. re: Gio

                  Alas to the flaky. Better remembered as Bakey.

                  And as to the puns, let's remember my Buns.

            2. I will accord with Mark Twain,
              since I pop from a can.
