Hope is alive for the Twinkie and not so much for the greedy scalpers. For you entertainment today, check out ebay where the cost of Twinkies are outrageous. One listing for twenty one million states:
THIS ITEM IS NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION!!!! THANK YOU FOR VIEWING MY AUCTION. I WANT TO MAKE A FEW THINGS CLEAR TO VIEWERS OF THIS ITEM: 1) THE ITEM WAS NOT PACKAGED ON THE 15TH OF NOV, BUT THE BOX IS FACTORY STAMPED WITH A BEST BY DATE OF NOV 15. THIS HAPPENS TO BE THE LAST DAY OF FULL HOSTESS FACTORY OPERATIONS. 2) THIS BOX IS IN SEASONAL HALLOWEEN DESIGN. THE DATE AND DESIGN MAKE THIS BOX EXTREMELY RARE AND COLLECTIBLE. WHY? BECAUSE HOSTESS DRIVERS DROP OF FRESH TWINKIES AND PICK UP THE “EXPIRED” BEST BY DATE ITEMS. THIS GEM DID NOT GET PICKED UP AND SURVIVED THE HALLOWEEN RUSH. IF YOU CAN FIND ANOTHER BOX WITH THIS DATE AND DESIGN, PLEASE SEND ME THE LINK TO IT. I’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR 3 DAYS ON EBAY AND ALL OVER THE INTERNET AND HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE ANOTHER. EVERYTHING I’VE BEEN ABLE TO FIND IS DATED LATER NOV AND DECEMBER. AGAIN, WHAT MAKES THIS ITEM SO RARE? THE BEST BY DATE BEING THE SAME AS THE FINAL HOSTESS OPERATIONS DATE AND THE SEASONAL HALLOWEEN BOX DESIGN. IT’S A TRUE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH. 95% OF THE SALE PRICE WILL GO TO HURRICANE SANDY VICTIMS THROUGH THE EBAY DONATION SYSTEM.
What a guy. He is only keeping a little over one million dollars.
If that is a little high for you then five million dollars states:
This isn’t just a auction, it is a way to become famous and get great publicity for any business or company… Me and my family will hand deliver the product to you and if bought by a company or business we will wear shirts with your logo, for the media to be able to take pictures.The money will be used to help put my kids through college and help me and my wife have a safe future.
This individual is only keeping 800,000 dollars.
If that is a little pricy for you then you can buy one box for $21.00.
Next up is the scandal that rocked the CIA. Paula Broadwell, General Petraeus and Jill Kelley have all hired either crisis management teams or P.R. Firms. It is not like having an adulterous affair is anything new. I don’t think that information is the most damaging information that has come out of all this. Jill Kelley hasn’t fared well, with the fact that the money for the charity she started was all used for entertainment, and travel expenses. The fact that Paula sent anonymous messages warning people about Jill makes me question her mental status. And General Petraeus just falls under the “there is no fool like an old fool.” So how is a P.R. firm going to white wash this?
Come on tell me your thoughts!
