Today, I had to sit patiently at the checkout at work, listening to my own father rant about how the twinkies he was buying were "twice the size back in my day", and how "you could buy a dozen of these suckers for just 10 cents." He didn't stop there. No, he tried to haggle over the price. FML
I agree, your life sucks 24 830

Can't wait until he does this for a pack of condoms.

Not really an FML.

Kinda is. Everyone has different FML moments....

Can't wait until he does this for a pack of condoms.

lol i bet he likes McDonalds too

"shiiiiit, back in my day, you could get a pack of 20 sheep intestines for a dolla! Man, you NEVER had to worry 'bout gettin yer sister pregnant!"

I think he already was... :p

#26 PETA would like a word with you

Man his dad musta been old. They probably didn't have condoms back in his day

#41 PETA...People Eating Tasty Animals..:)

I've watched the History of Sex on the History Channel. You'd be shocked to know how far back condoms existed. Nothing sexier than animal bladders, right?:P

Since the dad is old his wife is probably old enough so that he doesn't use condoms

I can't say for sure, but I'd think condoms were more expencive then.

Damn twinkies! They're not even delicious like everyone says. Now ho-hos on the other hand, that's what's delicious.

Twinkies are delicious

Try my Twinkie and I'll try your ho-ho anytime sugartits.

"delicious" is not awesome enough to describe twinkies

The Hostess CEO vomited spontaneously after sensing these posts.

I've never had a Twinkie

I concur, Twinkies aren't as delicious as they seem.

Twinkies are 60-70% air, fact x)

Fun facts make the world go around the sun, as Galileo would say.

are you trying to be super asian on purpose

OP's dad is brilliant. Junk food doesn't have as much fat or calories when you don't pay full price.

Who gives a damn about fat or sugar? We're all going to die eventually anyway. Might as well enjoy the simple things.

Tell that to Andy Reid. He looks like he's going keel over before my 10 year old dog does. I give a damn about fat and sugar because it fucks up my form (not to be conceited) if I take over certain amounts. Not like I don't eat junk food, but watching what I eat and how much of it really helps.

Andy Reid has been fat as long as I can remember. The key is to stay active.

Well, honestly, it's embarrassing how people become so obese, think it's a joke, and don't try to fix it.

Your father shouldn't be eating a dozen Twinkies anyway. 10¢? He'd probably never stop. They're addictive.

Does your father perhaps live in a trailer, support any politician "other than that there black guy", and go to Arkansas for a fancy vacation?

I sincerely apologize for this god-awful joke

Hey now, we southerners are some of best people in America. We know how to party here!

Ron Paul, 2nd Amendment rights, Twinkies, brisket, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Jack Daniels. Any questions?

19 - You've been doing a lot of apologizing lately q:, 40 - Ron Paul? I believe he'll do what he says he'll do when he gets in office the problem is that it will set us back 50yrs on top of ruining the economy! The gold sandard? Really? Have we learned nothing from history?

I swooned at Second Amendment rights. I think California has brainwashed me.

You mean people can still wield a gun? Minnesota doesn't even allow you to lawfully shoot someone raping your children in your own home. I love my state, but it's politics make me want to puke.

Just so y'all know I live in the deep south and I've been to the jack Daniels distillery

but you will still find me in the twinkie isle dont worry.

An isle just for Twinkies??? I'd love to vacation there!

not sure if you should. the only way you get through the gates is shoving a twinkie up your ass.

Don't get in between a man and his Twinkies! Especially when he feels he's getting ripped off! ;)

probably be for good reason . giant twinkies for 10 cents = very large people .
