It looks like Hostess will be liquidated. The end of Twinkies and Ding Dongs. A sad day in America. And I would have guessed that the vote to legalize pot in Washington and Colorado would have ushered in a new golden age for the company.
There go my hopes of roaming the land, shotgun in hand, fighting off zombies while looking for the last box of Twinkies.mewmewmew13 said:Yes, Alpe...you and I and folks like us are a huge part of the problem..
Exactly. Twinkies are ok but Ding-Dongs rule.patricknd said:**** the twinkies, what about the DING DONGS????????
"We the undersigned, hereby request Barack Obama to immediately Nationalize the Twinkie industry and prevent our nation from losing her sweet creamy center," a petition on the White House "We the People" website requests.
But neither can beat the legendary Sno-ball with all those bits of faux coconut that lodged in your teeth.Scott SoCal said:Exactly. Twinkies are ok but Ding-Dongs rule.
Help nationalize twinkies. Please sign the petition.
And they object when they're called wingnuts.“I can’t believe this, folks. I simply can’t believe it. The Socialist takeover of our nation is now taking away an American icon, Hostess. No longer will we enjoy Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Wonder Bread with our loved ones, but rather we will be forced to chew on carrots and celery like animals! I truly blame the First Lady and her Socialist push for healthy food. This is all Michelle Obama’s fault, I feel as though a part of me is dying. We can’t let this happen! Not in America! We need our food made of chemicals and pretend sugar filled with preservatives. I don’t like knowing what I’m eating. Carrots?! Apples?! Strawberries?! How boring does this White House want us to be?! We’re not Americans unless we’re eating things that are bad for us. It’s what makes us great! I’m so upset right now I think I need go to a commercial. We’ll be right back.”
this thread can be combined w one of the political ones in my opinion. A hedge fund took over the company, and like in Wisconsin made threats to the union and in the end followed through by closing down and putting 18,000 people out of work.Amsterhammer said:But neither can beat the legendary Sno-ball with all those bits of faux coconut that lodged in your teeth.
This morning, on air, no prizes for guessing who.
