Holy Chemically Based Undecaying Mock Foodstuff, Batman!
Penguin: “I’ll ruin this town! Gotham City will be Twinkieless! I have hoarded all the Twinkies by hypnotizing the Twinkies delivery men.”
Commissioner Gordon: “Batman, this is terrible. All the Hostess Twinkies have disappeared from Gotham City. We need your help desperately.”
Batman: “Emergency, Robin! Get to the Batmobile!”
Robin: “My seat belt’s as good as fastened.”
Meanwhile, in Norfolk…
Just bought all the Twinkies in Downtown Norfolk. If you’re nice maybe we can share. twitpic.com/bdq4hr

Hostess To Close, Leave World Unprotected From Hungry Supervillains [Comics Alliance]
FYI, in Canada City Twinkies are still available. Different baker.
@ManchuCandidate: about this Twinky news: I scarcely know whether to congratulate the residents of Canada City or condole with them.
More as a public service announcement than bragging.
Not a Twinkies fan.
You can have the Twinkies. I will miss the cherry sweet rolls.
@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Do you mean the ones that came in an aluminum tray? My Grandmother always had those at her house. Also came in pineapple.I have been thinking about them for along time.
I will miss the fruit pie. Road trip food.
Bummer. I always preferred Little Debbie to Hostess, but still.
I kinda freaked when Mother’s cookies went under, but a few years later you can still get them. Trust me, somebody will buy the Twinkie brand.
I always thought Dolly Madison was exotic, because it was advertised on Peanuts specials, and not available in Oregon.
Used to have a Hostess Lemon Pie before every sailboat race I was in – we raced these things out of Annapolis. The superstition didn’t help as we usually wound up in the last 1/3 of a 25 or 30 boat fleet.
@blogenfreude: That looks like fun!
@Dodgerblue: It is fun, and it measures absolute skill because the boats are identical, except for how you trim the sails.
@blogenfreude: I took sailing lessons when I was around 12 from a young woman who was probably a frosh or soph in college. I was totally in love and would have jumped into a shark’s mouth if she had asked me.
The highlight of my kids’ Halloween trick-or-treating this year was that one of the kids got a chocolate Twinkie.
Either someone was determined to be different from the run-of-the-mill candy bar donors, or they had completely forgotten about Halloween and were stripping the cabinets bare of all sweets.
