    A quick Google search tells me that it’s commonly misattributed to either Oliver Wendell Holmes, Junior. I think it was said by his father.

    …Well, that didn’t help me get the joke. What do they, or this quote, have to do with Twinkies?

    (…That “either” was left over from a longer draft. I can’t type tonight.)

    It would be funny comprehensible if Twinkies were actually stretchy.

    Maybe it’s related to the stomache which a Twinkie would stretch, and would never go back to it’s former size.

    At least in my case.

    You put Twinkies in your body, and it’ll never go back to its original size.

    Nope, still not very funny.

    He should have said “Gumby” instead of “Twinkie”.

    I thought it was about the inventor of the Twinkie trying to promote it. The idea is something along the lines of “once you have tasted a Twinkie, you won’t be able to get your mind off of it”. But I can see the stomach stretching analogy too.

    For BC, the Twinkie was the most radical new idea they could come up with.

    Anything involving non-fundamentalism - like science - would be blasphemy rather than a “new idea”.

    “Twinkie Crisis of 2012″, snark…

    I don’t suppose this has anything to do with the infamous “Twinkie defense“?
