Protect your Twinkie

Once upon a time, my friend Heidi gave me a Twinkie the Kid container for my Twinkies. Life was good. After a few years of having Mr. Kid on my desk I decided to give him away to a friend as I left for another job.

His life was now good. Until someone stole it from his desk. Life took a turn for the worse.

Hostess Twinkie the Kid Container

My friend, let’s call him Bob, was very upset about this snack cake kidnapping. He called Hostess begging for another Twinkie the Kid to fill the void that had been left on his desk and in his life. Unfortunately they no longer had any available. Poor Bob was never the same happy go lucky person.

Fortunately Bob’s life is about to shine again. Twinkie the Kid is now available for everyone. I think there’s a little yellow guy that will be heading Bob’s way pretty darn soon.

Every week is Shark Week with these ice cubes

There’s no better way to introduce your children to the joys of an evening cocktail than to drop a shark fin ice cube into their scotch or whiskey.

After all, kids love sharks. Sharks love water. Booze likes frozen water. Mix the three together and you’ve got a bunch of kids ready for their bedtime in no time flat. Heck, it worked in my family; only we didn’t get the added benefit of shark fins in our booze.

You may know that sharks also love to eat penguins. Use this ice tray to create terrified penguin cubes that are desperately trying to avoid the shark fin. Imagine the joy of watching your kids help the poor penguins as they down their hooch.
