On our honeymoon trip, Darwin and I were walking down the sidewalks of Mackinaw City when out of nowhere we found ourselves surrounded by a group of early-20s young men, all white, all shirtless, all clean-cut, all chiseled.  The LGBT slang for such men is "twinkies" or "twinks" because they're young, white, and full of cream.  (You may snicker here.)

Said twinkies were heading in the opposite direction, and they rushed around us, chattering and gabbling.  Once they passed, I turned to watch them go.

"Hey!" Darwin said.  "I know what you're thinking."

"I doubt it," I said.

"Then what are you thinking?"

"I was thinking that if a group of geese is a gaggle, and a group of wolves is a pack, what is a group of twinkies?"

"You're right," Darwin said.  "I didn't know what you were thinking."

And then it came to me.  "A box!"


"A group of twinkies is a box!"

"A box of twinkies!" Darwin howled.  "Yes!"

We spent the rest of the week on this.  Whenever we spotted someone who fit the description, out came the new word.  "Oh look--someone opened a box of twinkies!"  "Check that--one got out of the box."  "Hmmm . . . looks like that box is getting kind of stale."

I'd love to see this enter the general lexicon. :)
