    The Pillsbury Dough Boy?

    That's what they called the Infantry In.WW1.

    It was the moniker given to American soldiers in World War I. They got it because of their appetite for doughnuts. At first, they were called Sammies after Uncle Sam, but they dispised being called by that name and after a few broken faces, it died out and was replaced by Doughboy.
