Off Again, On Again…

Last Friday seemingly saw the Twinkpocalypse with the request of Hostess Inc. to shut it’s doors. O!M!G! You would think that the world is coming to an end cuz they haz no Twinkies. SRSLY?

By the way America, you have bigger problems as the nearly 18,000 almost out of work workers will tell you.


There were signs across the nation that people were panicked…

…as people were buying up Twinkies in droves.

WELL, hold the phones; calm the panic; Chill T!F! out…the two sides are going back to the table to try to talk things out (can’t we all just get along?)

I can’t remember the last time I had a Twinkie but I do know we have a Twinkie holder around here somewhere the goalie used for her snacks. We’re more of a cupcake/oatmeal pie crew around here.

The fact that ‘Murica went into a tailspin over the loss of a disgusting processed snack is why the world thinks we’re idiots. I’d have to agree. The fact that the pop media loves this sort of shit to deflect attention to real problems (the Economy; Benghazi; Middle East; Anything else) is not surprising…only nauseating.

Keep hope alive fatties…your Twinkies (that were actually never in danger of going anywhere) are showing a little life. Thanks doGs.


Nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.

About tosabarbell

For training opportunities at tosabarbell, call or text Juli at 320-296-9313. e-mail to At tosabarbell, I build relationships cultivated in a strength and learning environment. There is no 12 week magic pill program to strength but rather a lifetime commitment to be the very best and most useful human you can be. tosabarbell is a private, home grown gym with three lifting platforms; squat rack; prowlers; throwing implements; bars, bumpers and everything else needed for an effective strength and conditioning program. Straightforward barbell programming including the Olympic lifts; sound (read: not fancy bullshit) diet advance for weight gain or loss; and strong coaching will ensure you will meet your goals such as becoming stronger, more explosive, and better conditioned. I have been coaching teams and athletes for over 30 years. I grew up participating in various sports at various levels but was always drawn to those that require strength training. I have multiple local, national, and world records in the sports of Weightlifting and Highland Games Heavy Events as well as a combined total of 5 World Championships. My 5 years of training and coaching under Mark Rippetoe provided a wide range of influence from some of the top strength & conditioning and throwing coaches in the country. I will strongly encourage tosabarbell athletes to compete (and prepare you to do so.) However, tosabarbell is also for those who wish to be stronger and go through life feeling better. Matt WanAt is a retired Professional Strongman who competed frequently with Strongman Champions League in Europe. He played a year of D1 football with Iowa before concentrating on his Chemical Engineering degree in Iowa City. He is a native of Wauwatosa and still remains a staunch supporter of Tosa East. This blog will be a mixture of strength notes, coaching and nutrition tips, personal shit; bacon delicacies, and a whole lot of fun.
