Anyone know when the best sales week for Twinkies cakes ever recorded was? The week after it was announced they were no longer going to be produced because Hostess was filing for bankruptcy. Every store in America sold completely out of Twinkies that week. Soon people were selling them on eBay and getting $60 or more a box! Panicked Twinkie lovers and even people who hadn’t eaten one of the cakes since childhood were scrambling to get their hands on them before they were gone forever. People who had never eaten a Twinkie in their life felt like they had to get their hands on a box or forever miss the opportunity. That was in 2012 and of course in 2013 the beloved snack cakes once again returned to the shelves. All that panic and scrambling for the last box ever the previous year was all for nothing.
Most Americans realized that disarming law abiding citizens would never do anything to deter criminals from committing acts of gun violence. If anything it would embolden would be gunmen and criminals alike to prey on the unarmed masses. I guess I just find the whole thing magnificently ironic. The one man who would love to do away with all those evil boom sticks is the very one who inspired the most prolific 8 years of gun sales ever. As Alanis Morissette said “It's like a black fly in your Chardonnay” isn’t it Mr. President? Or perhaps it’s just a gentle reminder that America is still a Democracy and not a dictatorship. "The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government" and that comes from Article 21 of the United Nation's 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights…isn’t that ironic?
