Skip to comments.Twinkie ad on Ebay attacking Monetary Policy & Obamacare

It seems as though the Twinkie may be a new type of currency as you can break them down into smaller denominations, they are finite and collectible. I went on Ebay to see about buying some. I saw some of the bids were up to the $20.00 level.
This is from an ACTUAL LISTING: "My son and I cornered the market on these Twinkies at our local grocery store and purchased all of the remaining Twinkies off the shelves this Friday (November 16th 2012). This is a full, unopened box of Twinkies.
Many will buy the last remaining Twinkies to eat and some will buy to collect them because once they're gone, they are gone. Frankly, I haven't eaten a Twinkie in years; however, once I realized the finality of this, it made me think of my childhood. I used to love to go to my grandma's house in Ohio and raid the pantry. Twinkies, Ho-Ho's, King-Dons and Zingers were always abundant.
I have to keep one box unopened indefinitely, just so that I know they are there. If the apocalypse comes, then I will throw caution to the wind and break open that last box with my family, with no compunction about consuming the Yellow 5, Red 60 or the High Fructose Corn Syrup. After the prodigious printing of the dollar by Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve, the implementation of Obamacare - and the impending "fiscal cliff" the dollars with which the buyer pays for these 10 treasures in an unopened box could be used for currency in lieu of worthless dollars...."
Twinkies could have survived a nuclear war, but did not survive unions.
A union strike is more destructive than a nuclear strike!
I certainly never thought that it would be a union that would finally rip the Twinkie from my still-warm, sticky-sweet fingertips.
Oh...to lick that bit of sticky, light brown treasure that was left on the little white card one more time....
"...they took my TWINKIEEEEESS"
Thank you. The exact turn of phrase is mine, but it was inspired by RetiredArmy’s original and bolobaby’s improvement and wouldn’t exist without their wisdom.
I always enjoyed a twinkee from time to time. And Hostess cupcakes and snowballs. I have to say this may be the one thing that pushes people over the edge.
Where’s my Twinkies!?!
Don’t you have to fill your hollow points with creamy filling to be effective?
A shot of cream filling directly to the brain and you will never stop them.
al-Qaida LIVES! Ding-Dongs DIED!
Turns out the private equity boys who looted and pillaged at Hostess were DEMOCRATS including Gephart, LOL
That sounds like Walking Dead, a great satire about Democrat Obama voters.
Like gold, Twinkies should last forever without even oxidizing.
And also like gold, you could make jewelry out of Twinkies by dipping them in some kind of clear epoxy. Twinkie earrings, anyone?
And better than gold, Twinkies are lighter and you can even eat them in a pinch.
Wasn’t it in the movie “Zombieland” — with Woody Harrelson -— where they are desperate for Twinkies?
A Twinkie is a quick short-cut shortcake/w creme to a great quick strawberry shortcake dessert!
We are having our own farewell to Twinkie party on Sunday!
That does it. Without Twinkies no way will I be buying pot when it becomes legal where I live.
