What with all the sadness and trauma going on in the
world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the
death of a very important person which almost went
unnoticed last week.
I regret to advise Larry La Prise, the man who wrote
"The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age
The most traumatic part for his family was getting him
into the coffin.
They put his left leg in....and then the trouble
Please forgive me .

Pillsbury Doughboy Dies
Veteran Pillsbury spokesman Pop N. Fresh died yesterday of a severe yeast infection. He was 71. Fresh was buried in one of the largest funeral ceremonies in recent years. Dozens of celebrities turned out including Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Betty Crocker, and the Hostess Twinkies. The graveside was piled high with flours as longtime friend Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, describing Fresh as a man who "never knew how much he was kneaded."
Fresh 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. Still, even as a crusty old man, he was a roll model for millions. Fresh is survived by his second wife. They have two children and one in the oven.
The funeral was held at 4:50 for about 20 minutes.
