Friends ← Previous post Next post → Comments Delilah T Nov 01 2018 at 12:10 am Hey! That’s my tomorrow’s lunch Twinkie! (Thanks, Archie! Are those the gathering clouds of a storm? будет ли буря? TomZ Nov 01 2018 at 12:39 am One column of invaders are already in Mexico heading this way. A second one is nearing the Southern border of Mexico. Mid term election less than a week away. Why would anyone think a storm was on the way? MHR-MNF Nov 01 2018 at 12:11 am She’s using the Twinkie Defense! XD interventor Nov 01 2018 at 12:23 am Jo’s a lab produced product, as are Twinkies. Rather too much like a Jeffrey Dalmer diet. Deplorable B Woodman Nov 01 2018 at 12:38 am And how old was said Twinkie that Jo touched? That may explain why Jo wasn’t able to detect any organic matter. GWB Nov 01 2018 at 5:55 am It was a fresh one. Otherwise she’d have detected the little other-thing-that-survives-nuclear-holocaust footprints on it. cmblake6 Nov 01 2018 at 12:51 am I had wondered about those, all those years ago… Fox2! Nov 01 2018 at 1:14 am Things to survive the nuclear holocaust: cockroaches waterbears Twinkies Stephanie Osborn Nov 01 2018 at 1:35 am Well, water bears, aka tardigrades, ARE considered extremophiles by some scientists. Cockroaches, not so much. Other insects handle high rad doses much better. Tardigrada comprises an entire phylum, so there are a lot of different types (over 1100 species), and you can find them pretty much all over, from deep in the ground to high on a mountain, pole to pole and at the bottom of the ocean. I think they’re cute, personally. Punta Gorda Nov 01 2018 at 4:24 am And a stolen plot device for that clusterf#$@ Discovery series. nonncom Nov 01 2018 at 7:59 am Wouldn’t you like to be around 100 million years from now to see how those things evolve…. Milo Mindbender Nov 01 2018 at 4:57 am Dont forget Keith Richards, if one of us had bet the line in Las Vegas in the early 80’s on his survival we could be rich today. He is a practioer of the ancient art of self embalming.. interventor Nov 01 2018 at 9:17 am Last time I saw a face like that, an egyptologist was unwrapping it. Too Tall Nov 01 2018 at 1:50 am There is a Nobel Prize in Chemistry waiting for the first person who correctly identifies what is in a Twinkie. The closest anyone has come to date is proving that the “cream filling” is actually a byproduct of the production of synthetic motor oil. PaulS Nov 01 2018 at 6:34 am Twinkies a made of the stuff of dreams and goodness, anyone who thinks different is simply mistaken. 🙂 Pete231 Nov 01 2018 at 2:17 am Twinkies…… The only foodstuff with the shelf life of gravel next to Grape-Nuts cereal. Lucius Severus Pertinax Nov 01 2018 at 2:50 am No kidding! I have come across Twinkies labeled in Akkadian Cuniform! Too Tall Nov 01 2018 at 2:58 am Jo would love Grape-Nuts cereal as it is clearly an inorganic and inert substance. Bill M Nov 01 2018 at 4:28 am Indeed! cfm56dash7 Nov 01 2018 at 12:04 pm Some parts are edible. – Euell Doggo Nov 02 2018 at 8:47 am Didn’t he die of food poisoning? eon Nov 01 2018 at 7:42 am Don’t forget Spam. Which has the shelf-life of basaltic rock. The rock is generally more appetizing. Let’s not even get into the MRE pork patty. clear ether eon Deplorable B Woodman Nov 01 2018 at 11:04 pm Hey! Don’t knock SPAM. Love the stuff. Spent four years in Hawaii. You learn to love it (along with rice, seafood, and poi) or you starve. Halley Nov 01 2018 at 4:53 am The Politically Correct Food Police have a Most Wanted list, and Twinkies are #1. Those healthy souls who grew up on Twinkies are proof against the Politically Correct Food Police. Randy Metras Nov 01 2018 at 5:46 am Milo Mindbender @ 4:57 I believe the operative description of Keith Richards is “pickled!” LOL Bill G Nov 01 2018 at 6:12 am My poison, er, snack of choice was the Suzy Q. Despite all expectations of the food nazis, I’m still chugging along. PaulS Nov 01 2018 at 6:36 am Suzy Q! I Wuv You! Delilah T Nov 01 2018 at 7:28 am Chocolate Hostess cream-filled cupcakes. Because of them, I will outlive everyone in my family. WayneM Nov 01 2018 at 8:07 am Analysis through simple touch… Fascinating!! CaptDMO Nov 01 2018 at 8:27 am Lest we forget…. “Organic” includes aresnic David Grimes Nov 01 2018 at 9:45 am I have it from reliable anonymous sources that if you eat a Twinkie a day they won’t have to embalm you when you die. Spin Drift Nov 01 2018 at 10:32 am My Twinkie story, (and be honest don’t we all have one) is after the ’87 World Series, Hostess in the Twin Cites made double packs of Twinkies, one Devils food and one regular to represent, Kirby Puckett and Kent Hrbeck. Probably not possible in today’s offended at every turn PC culture. But those were simpler times, when the long suffering Twins finally put it together and won the big one. Too bad TPTB are turning it into Minnesotastan. Spin A corrupted childhood is the best one to have. S C Hooks Nov 01 2018 at 12:57 pm Spin, I describe mine as depraved. When I drop that into conversation, most people don’t even pick up on it JTC Nov 01 2018 at 11:04 am “No organic matter…” That makes two of you ya little liquid borg. At least I can eat the twinkie. You? Not so much. side note re: Stephanie Osborn You can learn some weird shit around here. 🙂 Brent Dotson Nov 01 2018 at 12:47 pm The so called Twinkie defense never happened. The guy’s lawyer tried to get him off with an insanity defense because of clinical depression. The lawyer pointed to his Twinkie use as EVIDENCE of his clinical depression; not because the Twinkies made him do it. Pamela Nov 01 2018 at 10:18 pm I guess Twinkies are something you should not put in your mouth 😉 Delilah T Nov 01 2018 at 11:08 pm Central American migrant caravan — which now numbers approximately 4,000, down from a high of 7,200 – throwing rocks at Mexican police – stuff like that, will get no sympathy from US military at the border. The military has been told to consider thrown rocks the same as rifles, and respond accordingly. And being the cynic that I am, these people will hold their kids up in front of them as shields. Wait and see. Doggo Nov 02 2018 at 8:53 am I agree with your last thought. In fact, they’ll probably teach the kids to throw the rocks.
