Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel Do EXACT Same Mitt Romney Twinkie Joke

Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel Do EXACT Same Mitt Romney Twinkie Joke”

Get push notifications with news, features and more. But it's the way the 72-year-old blew out his candles that has Twitter abuzz.

Romney's staff gifted him with a birthday cake made out of Twinkies, which he says are his favorite snack, and sang "Happy Birthday" to him. He pulls each candle out of the cake, blowing them out individually while holding the discarded candles in his hand.

"These are all wishes I'm getting", he told those crowded into his office. Headlines in TIME, BuzzFeed and elsewhere soon followed.

Former future president and current Utah Senator Mitt Romney created a stir Tuesday with an unusual birthday observance, and spawned an identical pair of jokes from late night hosts Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel.

"Completely freakish", a second user tweeted.

The Twinkie cake is pretty great, though.

Romney displays an unusual technique to blowing out the candles.

The more conventional way of blowing out birthday candles, of course, is simply blowing on all of them in one shot.

"Very simple: I have a bit of a cold and I didn't want to spray my germs all over the Twinkies for everybody else to eat", he said, also playfully noting that he wanted to take advantage of all the wishes from the candles.
