Finally, the Mayan Apocalypse Explained

In a moment of what may have been trance induced ague, my friend John McKay uttered a few words about Twinkies and the Maya that made a certain amount of sense, but something was still missing.

We may think this is bad, but what about the cockroaches? They were counting on those Twinkies to feed their young after the apocalypse. They must really be freaking out.
