Capt. Mooselips sails into Twinkie history

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:32PM

"POULSBO - What do you do with 2,410 Twinkies? Ask Paul Dudley of Poulsbo. Twenty-two years ago, Dudley started collecting a Twinkie here and a Twinkie there from kids as he ferried the Camp Fire girls and boys across the Puget Sound from Seattle to Vashon Island. It all started very innocently for Capt. Mooselips one summer while he was joking around and checking out campers lunch boxes enroute to Camp Sealth. Spying a Twinkie, he informed the young owner that he could take the helm of Daboata the following year - provided he had another Twinkie for him. The next year, he did, with Mooselips' name on it. But so did a lot of the other campers. The sweet-tasting tradition was born. "
