GUEST,saulgoldie BS: Obit: The Twinkie... (52* d) RE: BS: Obit: The Twinkie... 16 Nov 12

OK, OK, I *gotta* tell this Twinkie vignette.

Here's the setup.

So, on NPR (of course), when Hostess was in the initial stages of going under, they reported on a 50-year (yes, that is five-Oh)old Twinkie that had been discovered during someone's residential move. And the resident had eaten it and said that it was as fresh as the day it was born.

Step two. In the weeks prior, there had been a report about a civil suit involving Mountain Dew, and a mouse having been found in it. The MD executive at the trial insisted that "it couldn't have happened, because the MD would have dissolved the mouse." to the sound of HUGE guffaws! (Actually, it would have turned the mouse into a gelatinous state.)

Step three. (Do you see where this is going?) OK, so on "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" one of the news items they were talking about was the Hostess thing. And one of the panel asked (oooh, this is GOOD!), he asked, "So if you put a Twinkie in Mountain Dew, would it dissolve?"

Oh no, he di-en't! Oh yes, he DID! SNAP!!
