    Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

    Doughboy 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 grave site was piled high with flours.

    Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described 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 turnovers..

    He was considered a very smart cookie, but wasted much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.

    Doughboy is survived by his wife Play dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

    This is why I love language so much.

    "He was considered a very smart cookie, but wasted much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions."

    Idioms and words that all have to do with cooking, like smart cookie, half-baked, flaky, crusty, that get reused by a language to describe completely unrelated things, can be turned back and made into humorous jokes that are so culturally ingrained that non-native speakers who aren't very familiar with the language would have a lot of trouble understanding why they're funny. Texts like this are virtually untranslatable. How cool is that? icon_cool.gif

    I've been looking for the name of the author who wrote this, to no avail! Anyone know?
