Twinkie Apocalypse

As Wikipedia explains: Twink is a gay slang term describing a young or young-looking gay man with a slender, ectomorph build, little or no body hair, and no facial hair.

The term's namesake is the "golden-colored phallic-shaped snack cake" Hostess Twinkie, commonly regarded as the quintessential junk food: "little nutritional value, sweet to the taste and creme-filled." Cream is among the well-known food-related euphemistic terms for semen
A twink is "memorable for his outer packaging", not his "inner depth". The junk food reference has a number of connotations, including a perceived lack of intelligence and being ideal only for a short term, but not having lasting qualities or being very healthy.

Ironically, it was Dan White, after the hate crime of murdering Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone, who launched a legal "Twinkie defense," arguing that eating too many Twinkies drove him mad.

Hostess went out of business as of today, ending the declining reign of their nutritionally bankrupt snacks. Hostess owns Drake's cakes, so you won't be seeing them any more either. And both companies are, in fact, owned by Wonder Bread, makers of unhealthy bread-like food

Not surprisingly, Rush Limbaugh went into quite a lather today, blaming President Obama for the demise of the Twinkie, just stopping short of calling it a national disaster.  Governor Christie knowingly asked the press not to ask him about Twinkies. And legendary dance-music producer, Paul Gianatos, said his snack food preference was always Tasteykake anyhow. I believe diabetes expert Paula Deen likes to deep-fry her Twinkieshttp://djbuddybeaverhausen.blogspot.com/2012/01/paula-deen-glitz-and-glamour-of.html

Don't forget about Little Debbie, people; all is not lost!


Meanwhile, don't Rufus Wainwright and husband, Jorn Weisbrodt, make a cute couple in the new GAP ad? I'll bet neither of them has eaten a Twinkie in his life. Twinks maybe.

  1. Well, that's almost TMI, Buddy! I never thought I'd agree with Rush, but I also think it's a national tragedy. Twinkies, cupcakes and Devil Dogs are as Americana as hot dogs and apple pie. So sad not to see them. No Ring Dings either? OMG! However, I don't blame the President . . . but maybe Michelle!

  2. Haha! But methinks something's rotten in the state of Wonderbread regarding the timing of this and the immediate layoff of over 18k Americans right after the election & before the holidays. That certainly stinks.
