I guess Twinkies are more beloved than I thought. Now that Hostess is going bankrupt and Twinkies may be going away, people are paying stupid amounts of money for them. A guy in one of my classes sold a box of them on E-Bay for $165.00 over the weekend. He has ten more boxes, but he is saving them for future tuition. Who’d a thought that Twinkies could ever be used as currency?
