Rarely has overpriced nonsense teamed up in such a fine fashion than it has with the Wii U and Twinkies.

Name the hottest thing on eBay right now. The Wii U of course; earmarked as this holiday season’s number one must have (sorry iPad Mini), the first assortment sold out in a matter of seconds thanks to POS eBay hoarders. And they’ll be there, waiting in the shadows, to nab the second batch some this Black Friday, I guarantee.

Now name the second hottest thing going: Twinkees. Which might actually be harder to find in stores thanks to news that Hostess might be closing down business for good. Mostly due to those of us who haven’t had one since the age of 9 and want one last taste of… whatever the hell they put in those things.

So “awright1118″ figured it would be a good idea the combine the two. For sale at this very moment is a ten pack of Twinkees for $4,999 at the Buy It Now price. But if you’re the patient type, or just like being risky, you can simply put down the minimum bid of $4,499 and hope no one else bids.

Plus to sweeten the deal, the seller has thrown in the aforementioned new Nintendo console “for free.” Free shipping too!

It should be noted that even though you’ll find listing for Twinkees and other Hostess snakes all over eBay, everyone else is asking for far less. But that does that mean $30 is therefore a good price for a 10 pack? Not really.

Okay maybe for chocolate cream variant; never had those and might never will.
