Twinkies on Ebay - really?

I'm not sure if I should post this in food or Humor.  You be the judge

 

With the announcement that Hostess may close its doors for good during a bakers strike, people seem to be going nuts. 

So I see this article on Twinkies being sold on Ebay and I crack up a little.

Then I see this on Ebay.

What a deal! Only 800K per box or $80,000 per Twinkie, though you could enter a minimum bid of 3 mil for 10 whole boxes and take your chances.  Better to just give 'em $8,000,000 to be sure.  Free shipping too!!

The only issue at present being the brand price.

 

Sorry, the brand price vs. knockoff curve.

I teach 6th grade, and 11 years ago as a joke a student brought me in a Twinkie. I put it in a drawer in my desk and never got rid of it. When I heard about the company closing, it reminded me that I still had it in my desk. It looks exactly the same and even still has that weird fake sugar smell. It is solid as a rock though.

I like how the drawer has twinkles and BrainQuest.
