SoCS – Poppin’ Fresh

Day 178

Today, the glorious Linda’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS) prompt is:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dough/d’oh.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!

The first thing that came to mind yesterday was the term doughboy, which I quickly decided I knew nothing of its origin so that was out. Then I received a video call from my family in Florida so I could chat with my granddaughter. She pulled out a box of purposely unopened play dough to show me. That made me think about time I spent at my cousin’s house when we made homemade play dough of some flour/salt concoction.

My mind them roamed to Poppin’Fresh — the Pillsbury Doughboy. I remember the commercials fondly as he was a jovial little marketing guru which made the thought of baking partially prepped baking goods fun. Now I will need to find out who was behind the creation of Poppin’ Fresh. I wonder if he was chubby to warn of the dangers of overeating carbs and sweets. Doubtful. My guess he created to appear fun and jovial. I remember a friend who had a Pillsbury Doughboy cookie jar on her kitchen counter.

As I pulled this video I saw this character was also featured on an episode of Family Guy and The Simpson’s where Mr. Burns mistook Homer Simpson for the Pillsbury Doughboy. D’oh!

I just thought about whether or not I should post a link to my blog from my Facebook page. D’oh — I think I forgot to tell you I am now out of Facebook jail. And now I care less about that than I ever did.

If you would like to play along with the SoCS crowd, check out Linda G. Hill’s blog to find the rules and to read some of today’s offerings.

    1. I posted my link again and then they blocked again but this time they gave me a link to ask for a review. So, I asked for a review, just waited a week and tried again and it worked. Good luck!
