Jolly Green Giant Dead at 55
Police report Myke Johnson was parking when he struck the giant, killing him.
“All I saw was some leaves. I thought he was just compost!” The distraught driver said.
Mr. Giant never married. He is survived by his long-time ward, Sprout.
“He always said we were ‘two peas in a pod’.” Sprout commented.
A spokesperson for the company had this to say:
“Jolly was well-liked. Nobody could ‘Ho Ho Ho’ like him. Nobody.”
Services will be held Saturday at the Green Giant Canning Company. In lieu of flowers, please donate canned peas to your local food pantry.
