My back of the envelope estimate is that I would need to take 160 units of insulin for 3267 carbs

I'd check with my official calculator, but I fear that the Diabetes Police will bring me in for questioning / education / electric shock treatment.

This makes a lot more sense here than it does on the Selfies string.

After consuming all those Twinkies, doesn't this mean that Mr. Chestnut will no longer decompose in a landfill?

Don't follow this guy into the bathroom.

Chestnut's boasting of a Hostess prior.

If these are the new half-size Twinkies, no big deal.
