Laughter is the Best Medicine

“A merry heart does good, like medicine…” (Proverbs 22:17)
I like to laugh, so I’m always looking for funny stories.  The following obituary, although in circulation for several years, still brings a chuckle or two.  Enjoy!
Pillsbury Dough Boy Dead at 71
Sad news today, so join me in remembering yet another great icon of the entertainment community.  The Pillsbury Dough Boy died yesterday of a yeast infection and traumatic complications from repeatedly being poked in his belly during his lifetime.  The veteran Pillsbury spokesman was 71.  Dough Boy is survived by his wife, Play Dough; three children, John Dough, Jane Dough, and Dill Dough; plus they also had one in the oven.
He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.  Services were held yesterday at 350 for about 20 minutes.
Dough Boy (DB) 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.”
Longtime friend, Aunt Jemima, delivered the eulogy, describing DB as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded.  DB 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 flaky at times, he was considered a role model for millions.  Toward the end, it was thought he would rise again but alas, he remained unleavened.
