“Obit for the Pillsbury Doughboy…
Veteran Pillsbury spokesman, Pop N. Fresh died Monday of a yeast infection.
He was 31. Fresh was buried Thursday in one of the biggest funerals in years.
Dozens of celebrities attended, including Betty Crocker, Mrs Butterworth, the
Keebler elves, Mary Callendar, Hungry Jack and the Quaker Man. The graveside
was piled high with flours; longtime friend Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy,
describing Fresh as a man who “”never knew he was kneaded.”” Fresh rose
quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He
wasn’t considered a smart cookie and wasted much of his dough on half-baked
schemes. Still, even as a crusty old man, he was considered a roll model to
millions. Fresh is survived by his second wife. Together they raised two
children – and have one in the oven.
