“What do you see when the Pillsbury Dough Boy bends over?"/"Donuts.”

A riddle about the Pillsbury Doughboy is:

Q: What do you see when the Pillsbury Doughboy bends over?
A: Doughnuts.
(Also spelled “Dough nuts” or “Donuts.")

That is, the Pillsbury Doughboy has “nuts” made of dough. The joke has been cited in print since at least 1997.

“The Pillsbury Doughboy is a great roll model” is another Pillsbury Doughboy joke.


Wikipedia: Pillsbury Doughboy
Poppin’ Fresh, more widely known as the Pillsbury Doughboy, is an advertising mascot for the Pillsbury Company, appearing in many of their commercials. Many commercials from 1965 until 2005 (together with some for GEICO between 2009 and 2017) concluded with a human finger poking the Doughboy’s stomach. The Doughboy responds when his stomach is poked by giggling (Hoo-Hoo!, or earlier on, a slight giggle “tee hee").

History
The Pillsbury Doughboy was created by Rudy Pers, a copywriter for Pillsbury’s longtime advertising agency Leo Burnett. Perz was sitting in his kitchen in the spring of 1965, under pressure to create an advertising campaign for Pillsbury’s refrigerated dough product line (biscuits, dinner rolls, sweet rolls, and cookies). His copywriter, Carol H. Williams, imagined a living doughboy popping out of a Pillsbury Crescent Rolls can and wrote the campaign, “Say Hello to Poppin’ Fresh Dough”.
