    With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment,
    it
    is worth reflecting on the death last week of a very important
    person,
    which almost went unnoticed.

    Larry LaPrise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at
    the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him
    into the coffin. They put his left leg in, and then the trouble
    started.

    Shut up. You know it's funny.

    And yet another sad passing......

    Please join me in remembering a great icon. Veteran Pillsbury spokesperson, The Pillsbury Doughboy, died yesterday of a severe yeast infection and complications from repeated pokes to the belly.
    He was 71. Doughboy was buried in a slightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out, including Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, Captain Crunch and many others.

    The graveside was piled high with flours as long-time friend, Aunt Jemima, delivered the eulogy, describing Doughboy as a man who "never knew how much he was kneaded."

    Doughboy 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.
    Despite being a little flaky at times, even as a crusty old man, he was still considered a roll model for millions.

    Toward the end it was thought he'd raise once again, but he was no tart.

    Doughboy is survived by his second wife, Play Dough. They have two children and one in the oven.

    The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

    The really sad thing about the Hokey Pokey man passing on, 50% of the population never really found out what it's all about, while the other 50% did find out what it's all about and wished they hadn't. :thumbsup:

    The hardest thing for me to do was "turn myself about" and find "that's what it's all about" in the same movement. :rotflmao:


    No wonder I've had so many knee, shoulder and back surgeries.
