Happy Birthday, Twinkies

To honor the birth of that unbeatable, irresistible snack, the American Twinkie, the beagle and I have declared an office holiday. Instead of working, we will indulge ourselves with our stash that the beagle keeps poorly hidden under my desk to the point of bursting buttons and mephitic overload. It could come to the point where medical and psychological intervention may become necessary.

In the meantime, Happy Birthday, you amazing pile of high caloric spongy goodness, gooey sugar, and toxic waste. You’ve made my life worth living.

    Raising a slice of Wonder Bread and a can of Fresca in honor of the Twinkie’s birthday! They’re as much a part of my childhood as hoola-hoops and roller skates with a key! 🙂

    Lynn, enjoy your day off. I understand that some people fry Twinkies so maybe that might be something to try with your chocolate martini?

  3. Aww, I’m not really taking the day off. I’m going out of town tomorrow and Friday, so I’m actually working like a yak who just sat on a firecracker.

  4. Jay Leno had a great joke about the creator of the Twinkie something along the lines of, “The Twinkies company is sad to announce the death of the creator of the Twinkie. He’s been dead two years but had so many preservatives in him, no one realized it.”

    The Hostess Twinkie usually resides next to the cream-filled chocolate Hostess cupcakes on sales stands, and I go for the latter. Do I win a prize if I’ve never tasted a Twinkie?

  6. Frank, Frank, Frank, I never pegged you for a Hostess Ho-Ho kinda guy. Tha’s ok. All the more Twinkies for me and the beagle.

    “The Twinkies company is sad to announce the death of the creator of the Twinkie. He’s been dead two years but had so many preservatives in him, no one realized it.”

    Marilynn, I imagine that when I become a worm feast in about a hundred years, I daresay they’ll say the same thing about me.
