My logic here is a bit off. If you’re going to base your monetary system on something (which is a bad idea for a lot of reasons) it should be something relatively rare like gold or silver. Twinkies are fairly plentiful – at least right now. Of course, if there were a Twinkie Standard one would assume you’d need to stockpile Twikies in some sort of Twinkie Ft. Knox resulting in at least a short-term shortage. In fact a Twinkie Standard could require the nationalization of any private Strategic Twinkie Reserve such as RJ’s. So, perhaps, it’s not completely off base.
Bottom line? You probably shouldn’t rely on a comic strip featuring talking animals with thumbs for accurate information on monetary policy.
