Ho Hos
What do you call streetwalkers dressed as Santa Claus?

Do they still make Hostess Snowballs? A pink one and a white one covered with coconut? Mmmmm. Can't have those any more due to my diabeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetus.

[quote name=\'Matt Ottinger\' post=\'222994\' date=\'Aug 14 2009, 09:38 AM\']Oh, grow up.  It's not a question of whether she "qualifies".  It's a matter of your "disbelief" (genuine or not) that nobody would mention a book which does not exist from an obscure personality.  There was a better way of bringing it up (pretty much how you did with Ross Shafer above).  I wasn't the only person who thought so.[/quote]

See, that's all you had to say instead of admonishing me to "grow up".  I never knew that her book was never formally published.  I brought up the whole disbelief regarding Susan Stafford intended to be in a jovial and lighthearted manner.  Charge it to my head and not to my heart, cause it's really really not that serious at all; I was simply making conversation.

As for her being an obscure personality, that's another matter altogether, considering to the world at large, anyone who was a classic game show personality beyond the syndicated versions of Wheel and Jeopardy, and the CBS version of TPIR pre-1990 is an obscure personality.   Where else can you go to find out that the lovely Concentration model (not hostess) Paola Diva passed away in 2007 other than GSF?  This is (IMO) one of the few places you can discuss obscure GS personalities freely.

As for the whole hostess vs. model debate, I promise to only use the word hostess when referring to Ho-Hos, cupcakes, Ding Dongs (wasn't it once King Dons?), Suzy Qs, Sno-Balls, and the ever popular Twinkies. ;-)

Different colors for holidays - orange around Halloween, green for St. Patrick's Day.  I've also seen purple (Easter?).

One of my favorites; grosses out my wife and son when I eat them.

You must teach your son to deal with purple Sno Balls (spelling is sans "w").

He might freak out to learn that there are glow (or glo) in the dark Sno Balls produced around Halloween. I'm curious what they use to make them glo in the dark.

He probably won't be dealing with Sno Balls any time soon; he doesn't like chocolate.  (I don't think he likes coconut much either.)

No Mounds or Almond Joy for this kid. At least he knows how to play Concentration.

Have you considered a child psychologist? :-)

Oh, and original white for Christmas. I didn't know the Halloween ones were glow-in-the-dark...

There's nothing like a delicious barium-flavored snack.
