And the twinkies are...

I mean the Twinkie Poetry Contest winner, of course.

All the entries were winners in my eyes, of course. It was a hard decision for the judges to come up with just one, but they did, and that winner is......(drum roll)

Hubris! His winning entry:

Shove thee more twinkies, in thy piehole,
Add to the fat roll!
Leave thy slender past!
Let each new pound, more ghastly than the last,
Lead thee toward "husky" jeans with a size more vast,
Till thou undergoes surgery for a fee,
Shedding thine outgrown gut through lipectomy!

For his efforts, Hubris will receive a box of Twinkies as well as a Twinkies bumper sticker, courtesy of McBoozo's Drunken Poetry Jam.

I'd like to thank everyone who entered, as well as the judges:
The husband

May your filling always be creamy.



I would like to thank our gracious hostess, Hostess, the judges, Oliver Wendell Holmes, my fellow contestants, and polysorbate 60.

Curses! Foiled again! By an expertly crafted homage, no less!

Seriously though, nicely done, Hubris.

Thanks Keiran. I had an unfair advantage over the other talented contestants, in that today is my birthday and cosmic forces are aligned in my favor.

There were a lot of good entries... congrats Hubris.

And I never got to post my "Who Blew Up the Twinkie." I'm sure it would have sealed my fate as poet laureate for some state.

I demand a recount!

Any honorable mentions?
