Stinky Twinkie: "Driving Mad Miles Since 2008"

Christmas shopping this weekend at the mall was the exact opposite of fun.  It was a day filled with screaming children, overly agitated people, and “sales” that you know aren’t really a sale at all.  I grasped at anything that could make the day more bearable.  I thought about how delicious warm pretzels are, I polished my sneakers on the way up and down the escalator (on the side bristles), and even watched teenagers throw change off the 2nd floor on to the people below (AKA, me). Fortunately,  there was something amazing waiting outside in the parking lot, an attention grabbing black hole of a vehicle.  The very first moment that I saw it, I knew it was special.  As I meandered to the back of the parking lot dodging all of the cars that were deliberately trying to run me over, I was finally able to read the side of it.  ”Stinky Twinkie” – “Driving Mad Miles Since 2008″. Heck yes, instant mood improvement.

It was parked just a couple spots down from me in the mall parking lot, and nobody around me seemed to even acknowledge its presence.  With so many mad miles, how could it be possibly be ignored??  I have no idea.  Was it a figment of my imagination? I pinched myself to make sure, and decided it was not.  It was in fact a real-life gigantic bright yellow van with a port hole window (brutally awesome btw), and a “Stinky Twinkie” billboard plastered down each side.  Before my wife had time to tell me how childish I was for considering an impromptu, rain filled photo shoot of Stinky Twinkieness in the parking lot, I snapped off a few as evidence.  Let’s be honest, making claims of a Stinkie Twinkie van without photo’s is about as good as announcing to the world that you have Sasquatch tied up in a top secret location.  You’re a liar.  Stinkie Twinkie on the other hand……. is as real as apple pie.  I’m not sure how many, or what kind of miles are considered “mad”, but I would imagine each mile is special when you are rollin’ with this kind of style & class. With that, I present to you………. “Stinky Twinkie”.

    Poor man’s Provost-Winniebagel…easy to find in a parking lot, easy to park, fairly good gas mileage.

    I just saw this van in a parking lot of a strip mall on Washington Street in Woburn, MA. I couldn’t believe the name!! And the outside colors and decorations?!… It’s like blue blobs of paint were thrown at it, haphazardly, and splotches of brown look more like the actual color and shape of poop, if it were thrown at a vehicle’s side panels. No… it’s really just paint, but the visual effect is priceless!

    My cousins, the Newmans, have to see this. They are famous for collecting signed toilet paper from celebrities.

    Thanks for posting this with photos and a wonderfully written sharing of your experience. I’m posting this on my Facebook page.

    LOL! I see this van in it’s driveway (I assume) every Tuesday on my way to teach music lessons in Winchester. I won’t give the exact address, but it’s near the Burlington. Too funny.
