Entering three profane sexual terms as musical groups, it returned Derek and the Dominoes.

I don't know what to do next.

Don't have the link anymore, but wasn't this done almost the exact same way years ago using marshmallow peep bunnies?

This is probably based on (ok, ripped off from) the classic spy magazine article from 1989. The most wonderful thing about the original article was the photos of the twinkie both pre and post test. Except for the radiation experiment, there was no change in appearance.

We can wait no longer my beloved brethren. The quest must begin at dawn tomorrow. The infidels must be driven back into the trees from whence they came.

Sandwiches will be provided for lunch (Bring your own refreshments)

15k people - please join me in saying "Hello, Mr. Garrett! Thank you for coming by!"

Now leave quietly. These old folks, they don't like to be disturbed.

Damn skippy. Now get off my lawn!

Yeah, okay, I admit, I'm old enough that when I talk about "good grass" and I'm actually referring to someone's lawn - but at least our magazines were funny back then. Even if we did have to walk barefoot 10 miles in the snow to library to read them (up hill both ways).

Wow. Back in the day, the T.W.I.N.K.I.E.S. project was one of the four or five interesting sites that the general public knew about.
