Twinkies may give us the runs
Bernanke has just ordered tons
His printing is peaking
So now he is seeking
A new recipe for sore buns

The Limerick King






Beware of this well disguised fake
Our wealth he is trying to take
Our health he is killing
With Keynesian filling
Bernanke says: "Let them eat cake"

That face just made my pet rat puke.

A bearded monster riding on my favorite childhood snack; NAY, my childhood lovelly-liscious lunchtime treat!

This for me represents the end of civilization as I have known it.  It is a sad day for America.  The end of a era.

I thought he would at least wear some Federal Reserve notes at his legs. That's what those rubber strings for.

Very Great again L'King and Banzai  :))

never imagined bubble Ben in such bright colours, more Brownies than Twinkies, following the DC and WS losers picking up their soiled nappies and pretending these babes, well brats, will turn around the economy

let's hope Ben is witch doctor of a tribe of head shrinkers when his 'magic' fails and they turn on him... blowing electro-bubbles up the arse of politicians and banksters is not doing anything out here in the real world to make anything more productive.. this 'spell' is just so damn stupid he's gotta be drinking some mentally dysfunctional potion

WB7, surely a man of your obvious talent could find a New Guinea native in formal dress uniform (like you wearing a tuxedo), including the "piece de resistance," the ornamental penile cone.

For starters, a quick search found:  http://www.pbase.com/image/90519037

But we still have circuses and bread

Who needs Little Debbie

We have Ben Bernanke

and To The Moon! pies at The Fed

You're not going to believe this.  OK, I take that back.  You will.  Pardon if this has been posted by someone else, but there is now a plea to Dear Leader to nationalize the Twinkie:

that should be "Corporate" Sponge Cake with Keynesian filling, and maybe "Scotess" Bernankies. then there was the famous "Twinkie Defense", the man who shot SF mayor Harvey Milk said he was on a sugar high when he did it, caused by overeating Hostess Twinkies. In this case it was a Bazooka, and he killed the economy. I can hear him explaining himself in the future, blaming easy money on the indulgent Congress, when they should have made him eat his vegetables and not overindulge the debt limit.

Twinkies are good currency. They are imperishable, and you can eat them if you can't trade up. Exchange rate: 4 twinkies = 1 silver dime

A most excellent parody Sir Banzai.

QE3 as 'filling' - great.

'Bernankies' - lol.

I mean, just like Twinkies, QE never goes bad, right?

Temporalist's picture

Shouldn't the "Keynesian Filling" actually be nothing?  That "Bernankie" should be filled with puffs of air just like the fiat dollars he prints.

And instead of "product enlarged to show detail" it should be "product manipulated to represent value".

I thought it should be brown but nothing is one up. +1

The Queers  "Too Many Twinkies"


Ripping off your friends, stuffing your fat face
I'm kinda bummed out I'm part of your race
Someday you will learn that it's cool to start
Just look at me and B-Face and try not to barf
Too many twinkies
Too many twinkies
Too many twinkies
Too many twinkies
You're a bunch of rockstars, you're a bunch of lard
And I hate to tell you, your bass player's a retard
So shut your stupid fat moth and hang up those guitars
Quit beating off every night and smoking those cigars
Too many twinkies
Too many twinkies
Too many twinkies
Too many twinkies
