How did the word “Twinkie” evolve into a nickname for a vapid female? I was hoping you knew. Also, think of the other snack food names – “Ding Dongs,” “Ho Ho’s” and the like. You don’t want to be called by those names either. We can live without Twinkies and Hostess cupcakes. My mom never bought those items so I never acquired a taste for waxy chocolate and cake with a shelf life longer than most cats.
