He was 71. Doughboy wasburied in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out topay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, theCalifornia Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and CaptainCrunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as aman who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly inshow business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was notconsidered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-bakedschemes. Despite being a little flaky at times he was a crusty old manand was considered a roll model for millions.Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Doughand Jane Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived byhis elderly father, Pop Tart.The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.
