“Tuesday Afternoon Is Never Ending.”

To start this afternoon, I’ve got a link for you to enjoy.It’s a subject especially near and dear to the hearts and stomachs of us here at L.E.M.U.R. Comics Blog.

I speak of Hostess Fruit Pies. Although Dolly Madison was my personal choice of fried fruit pie, they’ve become difficult to find here. So Hostess pies and their bargain priced cousins got Jesse and I through college. It was a serious thing…so serious that

1. My screen name on ICQ was King Hostess. Don’t bother looking for me there; I’ve moved on to Google Chat,

2. We would keep each other updated on where to find (in stores or campus vending machines) the good stuff at a good price…two for a dollar was the ceiling,

3. We stockpiled and rationed them in our dorm room.

If you’re wondering what all this has to do comics, you clearly never read a mainstream comic book between the 1970’s and the 1980’s. For those of you that missed out, click the pie wrapper and consider yourself schooled.


If you’re feeling nostalgic and in need of a snack, click on the pie wrapper too. All will be better.
