Dough Boy

Dead Man Walking

   Oh, the people you meet in Hollywood! My car needed a checkup and while waiting for my mechanic, I got to talk to his jolly brother-in-law Mike Nomad who was a stunt double for famous actors like Robert Redford, Nick Nolte, and Nicholas Cage. Because of the abuse he did to his body, one of his arteries burst and he was rushed to the hospital. He was Dead on Arrival. End of story? No way! This was just the beginnning.

   He said his spirit pulled out of his body and he saw himself lying on the bathroom floor. He was hovering ... his feet were not on the ground. He said he was in a peaceful state. He passed through the bathroom walls and found himself floating in a valley. There were no people, there was no sound, there was no sun or moon but there was light. Then he saw a silver ring with 6 shafts of light emanating from the sides. His curiosity brought him closer to it but a strange thing happened. He wanted to go through it ... not around it, not under or over it but THROUGH it. But when he got closer, the ring would shrink. When he would pull away, it would open up again. Being a stuntman, he decided to lunge into it. But only half of his body went through and he was stuck ... pretty much like Winnie the Pooh was stuck in the honey tree. Then with all of his might he pulled it apart and it shattered into several pieces. And that's when the voice came. "You're going back. It's not yet your time. There are things you have to do." Suddenly he found himself lying naked in the hospital. He watched the doctor go through his check list, preparing for the embalmer and then the their eyes met.

   "You're back!" the doctor exclaimed.

   "Yes, I'm back!"

   He had been dead for 18 hours.

   There's a lot more Mike shared with me like never feeling any pain throughout this whole experience or being told he would be a "vegetable" ... things no one could explain. But the one thing he knows for certain is there is LIFE after death.

   You read stories like this but it takes on new meaning when you meet someone who's been there. Tell this story to your atheist friends. TGIF people!

"Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

“Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
--- John 11: 25 - 27

Celebrity Death

This joke has been around for some time but I never had the pleasure of illustrating it. This joke is full of witty double entendres. It's almost poetic. Hope you like it too. And if you are not familiar with this guy, you can watch this old commercial with "Marsha" of the TV sitcom, "The Brady Bunch." --- Raoul

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 gravesite 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 in Minnesota."

Doughboy 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 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.

If you smiled while reading this, please rise to the occasion and pass it on to someone having a crumby day and kneading a lift.

The Biggest A+hole

You may know someone like this guy. The other day, I saw this haughty young man park his loud Ferrari in front of a restaurant in the Handicap zone. There were several other parking spaces just a few feet from him but he had to brandish his little toy for all the world to see. I wish that guy would watch this movie. TGIF people!
