1. There's a honey bun on a shelf in our lab at work that's been there since 01'

I guarantee that thing is still edible

3. Is there like a betting pool or something?

Whoever's brave enough to snarf it down wins the pot and colon blockage?

4. not yet, but that might be an idea, it's become pretty hard

actually, it's kind of rock solid but the icing looks good and it's still sealed. I imagine it tastes the same

10. Maybe in another 10 years it will crystalize and turn into diamond.

That actually reminds me of something stupid I did a couple of years ago. I bought a wax pack of Topps Football cards from the 80's that still had the stick of gum in it. Well needless to say I bravely took a bite out of the plasticized looking stick. I've never spit out anything from my mouth faster in all of my life and I've had gasoline in there.

2. The Twinkies in WALL*E were some 700 years old and still fresh.

 

I believe there is a message in there somewhere.

5. Isn't it ironic that Twinkies and cockroaches are ...

the only two things that can survive a nukylar blast,

but even cockroaches won't eat Twinkies?

6. I think the twinkies eat the cockroaches.

Just a guess.

7. Nonsense! When Howard Carter discovered King Tut's tomb in 1922, there was a box of 3000 year old

 

Twinkies sealed inside the sarcophagus & they were still fresh. Carter & his men ate heartily that night though they lacked milk. In fact, that is the original Mummy's curse - a bellyache caused by eating 3,000 year old Twinkies with no milk.
