Hostess, What Hast Thou Wrought?

As evidenced by the fact that I recently wrote almost four thousand words about Marvel's twelve-issue counterterrorist dirtbike epic Team America, I tend to be pretty longwinded. As we've seen, however, sometimes I offer up things without commentary of my own, as there is nothing I can say that will make them any funnier.

And this is one of those times.

From Power Man and Iron Fist #50:

And purely for the sake of context, here's the rest of the ad:

I'm sorry Chris, I can't think of a comment clever enough to justify that $20 you paid me to endorse this post.

I'm pretty sure Seanbaby skewered this one back in the day. "I just thought of something" should get some sort of award for the worst justification for ducking out the room to change into super-duds.

But what happens if the villain prefers real food? Like a nice juicy steak with A1 Steak Sauce(R)? Then again, I suppose it's about as plausible as Peter Parker just happening to have a package of Hostess Cup Cakes when some evil dude robs a gem museum.

I know, I know, stop trying to introduce logic into this!

I always wondered where in the hell he kept the Hostess treats on the Spidey suit. I mean, come on, that things so tight I can see his Ding-Dong.

That excuse really is straight from the mind of Homer Simpson.

"I just thought of something, mary jane!"

"What is it?"

"I... have to go... change. Into... my... secret. Super-hero... identity. Spider-Man.

There's some "sub-textual" connection between a "spoiled snatch" and a "ho-ho" that is lying in wait.

Then of course there are "sno-balls". (why does my mind remember "pr0n" terms?)

Uh...and Ding-Dongs, Twinkies, and "Cream Pies"!


Are ALL snack cake names euphamisms for porn?


word verification:


I don't know what...
I don't WANNA know what
THAT means in euphamism-land!
