‘Twinkie defense’ phrasemaker fills us in

Friday’s column (read it here) begins with two items about Paul Krassner, the satirist, who spoke Wednesday in Claremont. He briefly addressed his coinage of the phrase “Twinkie defense,” among many other topics. Also in the column: other items of cultural note and a piece of weird crime news from Claremont involving a chatty drunk.

    I am passing on a little humor that was sent to me regarding the situation with “Hostess”. It has nothing to do with the author you profiled, but its part of the subject matter. If you don’t like, you have the “remove” capability:

    “You may have heard that Hostess Bakery plants shut down due to a workers’ strike. But you may not have heard how it was split up. The State Department hired all the Twinkies, the Secret Service hired all the HoHos, the generals are sleeping with the Cupcakes and the voters sent all the Ding Dongs to Congress.”

      That was funny, especially the Secret Service part.
