The only thing Twinkies remind me of was Dan White's "Twinkie Defense." He assassinated San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk in 1978 and used his obsession with this junk food to gain a manslaughter conviction instead of murder. He only served FIVE YEARS in prison for his crime because he ate too much cream filled crap cakes.
