For those who missed it, I wasn't being serious about the gold or the ammunition.

Only the Twinkies.

Naturally. Which is why I didn't comment on the Twinkies. But now that they are no longer original Hostess Twinkies, will they endure? There was as a time I was pretty sure that the gold would deteriorate before the Twinkie.

Since the giant conspiracy of the smaller sizes and no aluminum foil to wrap Ding Dongs I am anti Hostess.

I ate a box of Twinkies just last week. They look and taste exactly as they always did.

I hate to admit that I just love those things.

If you're stashing things for Armageddan, don't forget change for a twenty. You can't buy and sell if either you or them don't have change for the big bills. Nobody stashes ones.

You're not going to be trading twenties.

You're going to be trading bullets for Spam.

I've seen the movies.

I have not had them since the change so I am glad to hear they are the same. DO you know Chezaday? One of his gimmicks is his love for Twinkies!

( You ate a whole box?! Smile How many is that? )

Ding Dongs and HoHos are great! I did not know they stopped wrapping them in foil. I am partial to Little Debbie Nutty Bars and Oatmeal Cream ies.

There were ten Twinkies in the box I ate. Took about half an hour.

Had heartburn all night and was so wired I couldn't sleep. But it was worth it.

Have you ever tried to sleep hanging upside down by your ankles?

(I have no idea what that has to do with anything; it was just a random thought that occurred to me. I don't know if bats even eat Twinkies.)

I think that Twinkies suck after they were relaunched. I think they're smaller, the cake more chewy and cream filling not as creamy.

Of course it could be they do to live up to my memories. I will state undeniably that the Hostess Fruit pies are near inedible now. A hostess cherry pie was one if my guilty pleasures. But the crust is doughy and revolting.

Okay, back to Slim's prophecy of gloom, doom, and falling skies.

The bakery (one of) that made the 'original" style twinkies was here in Orlando. The union rejected the companies offer so the company folded. It shut down. Everyone could smell the bakery on I4 for years and years. Now nothing. Some copycat company is making an inferior product without the original bakers themselves.

BTW ... Your stock market has fallen about 1400 points in three working days.... That IS GLOOMY!!!!!!!! No matter how many excuses you make. I hope it will recover as we are losing Billions from everyone's 401K accounts.

Why do you say everyone's? Do you willfully act ignorant of facts of is it actual ignorance? Not EVERYONE loses Slim.

Your lack of compression of investing is mind boggling.

According to Wikipedia they were reduced in size BEFORE Hostess Brands filed for bankruptcy.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twinkie#Re......._market

"Before Hostess Brands filed for bankruptcy, Twinkies were reduced in size. They now contain 135 calories and have a mass of 38.5 grams, while the original Twinkies contained 150 calories and had a mass of 42.5 grams. The new Twinkies also have a longer shelf life of 45 days, which was also a change made before bankruptcy, compared to the 26 days of the original Twinkies."
Make America Great Again! - Trump in 2020 ... "We're a capitalistic society. I go into business, I don't make it, I go bankrupt. They're not going to bail me out. I've been on welfare and food stamps. Did anyone help me? No." - Craig T. Nelson, actor.

My bad...I hadn't eaten Twinkies, or other Hostess Products for years and years. After "The Sweetest Comeback Ever!" I just had to try the new products. So I never noticed the reduction before bankruptcy. Also tried the Ding-Dongs and Ho-Ho's...didn't like them either.

I'm going to stick with the occasional Little Debbie Nutty Bars for a treat...

By the way, your stock market has risen 5,726 points in the last 5 years, net of the last three days.

That is . . . whatever the opposite of GLOOMY is . . . unGLOOMY.
