I do like how Byrne drew (draws) the original X-Men. Thanks, Luke!

275(!) cosplay photos from San Diego. My favorite is the Iron Dog.

On Twinkies: My mom would buy a variety of Hostess snack cakes, not just Twinkies. She also skewed to the off brands, such as Little Debbie.

"Off brand"??? Anyone who disses Little Debbie is just itchin' for a fight in my house!

I believe Little Debbie (like 7-11 stores) started in the South. Little Debbie cakes didn't show up in California until a few years ago.

Yeah, Little Debbie was at least as popular as Hostess, or moreso, all my my life. And I've lived in the South my whole life.

"'Off brand'??? Anyone who disses Little Debbie is just itchin' for a fight in my house!"

I shall keep that in mind should I ever come for a visit.

Little Debbie comes from the Chattanooga area.

To which you are always welcome.   photo beer.gif

Articles on Katherine Hepburn frequently note she was labelled "box office poison" in the late 1930s. It's misleading, as she was just one of several actors listed in the article. Wikipedia has an account of the article here.

Just look how happy the little guy is!
