All right. Where do I get one? Do they have a recipe for the deep-fried Twinkies like they serve at the Texas state fair?

The people who gave us golf and called it a game are the same people who gave us bag pipes and called it music and haggis and called it food.

You cannot possibly be serious that someone would fry those and EAT them?

Let's face it - could a deep fried Twinkie possibly be less nutritious than a regular one?  At the Texas State Fair, they also have deep fried Snickers and other nutritious snacks...or so I've heard.  I managed to leave Texas in my 66th year, without ever having visited the state fair (held all of 30-40 miles away from my home.)

These are not just Texas oddities. You can find them here in Ohio as well. Twinkies, snickers, oreos, and many other things battered and deep fried at most fairs. At the Ohio State Fair there is even a guy that boasts he can batter and deep fry anything. As a demonstration he took challenges from the fair-goers. The ballet slipper was the the pinnacle of french fried skill.

All you have to do is deep-freeze it, put it on a stick, dip it in batter and fry it. ;-) Oreos are better, though. LOL.

Why is it so cold on this beach? And what's taking the bartender so long?

Have to share my story about saving the day with Twinkies once.  My older brother was getting married (for the third time, it was a habit he had) and the wedding was being held at my parents' home.  My mom always loved to get things ready ahead of time, so she had ordered the wedding cake and set the dining table with the wedding cake near one end.  We went out to lunch before the wedding and when we came home, found her cockapoopoo had climbed up on a chair and eaten about a fourth of the bottom tier of the cake. 


The wedding was in less than an hour, so it was up to the AntiCook and me to save the day.  We rushed off to the baker's, who gave us some extra frosting and went by the store and picked up a package of Twinkies.  We used the Twinkies to fill in the hole in the side of the cake, used the extra frosting to cover it up, and used a table knife to move some roses and other decor around to that side.  (Mother not being a cook, there was no question of her having any cake decorating equipment lying around.)  My Mom had me serve the cake, and made me promise never to tell anyone (and of course, only to serve pieces from the opposite side of the cake.)  Turned out my future third ex-sister-in-law managed to piff off my Mom after the wedding, so my mother turned to her, glared at her, and said "The dog ate part of your wedding cake."
