ZeroCorpse: I might eat one Twinkie per year. Then I remember why I only eat one Twinkie per year. The mediocre flavor isn't worth the empty calories. There's absolutely nothing of value in a Twinkie. They're solid-baked chemical sludge.


Werd. I'd rather have one of those spongecake dessert cups filled with whipped cream. Plus fresh fruit.

firefly212: lionfish: Irrelevant, Walmart's brand "Great Value" has already stolen the Hostess technology and cloned all their snacks, Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Hohos, cupcakes, even the long lost Hostess "O's" (Rasberry filled white dohnuts) are back on the shelves at walmart and are indistinguishable from the actual products they copy.  All the old hostess brands are there, even dunkin stix. And they are FAR cheaper than hostess ever sold them for.

I'll shop at a WalMart half past when I die. I'm not giving my money to people who use it to keep wages artificially low by putting American labor in competition with Chinese slaves.


This.  Call me when there are Costco Twinkies.

Another properly looted company run into bankruptcy. All creditors and regular employees thoroughly screwed. Doors closed for the requisite time so those pesky union people don't have to be hired back. Sold to a company that will probably re-install the same management team that destroyed it in the first place, after they've all enjoyed a nice vacation. The rest will be hired back without bargaining rights and no pensions and maybe forshiat medical benefits, at half what they were making before.

Watch for the news stories about who claims credit for creating all these new jobs.

verbaltoxin: We buried you. There was a coffin, a gravestone...the whole thing.

I knew you were alive, I knew it. Everybody said I had to let you go. I love you. You're the love of my life.

You said you'd be right back.

Well I'm sorry too...but I had to move on.

Mrs. Freshley is a whore and a madame, and pimps out Little Debbie.

Twinkie The Kid, however, is virtuous and beyond reproach.

HotWingAgenda: Gifted Many Few: I just check ebay. Twinkies are miraculously going for a reasonable price. Except one guy, charging $500 for a box that expired 3 months ago.

That's the last box of REAL Twinkies before the factory shut down.  It's like selling the last six pack of original Coca-Cola from before New Coke.


You can still get REAL Original Coke every Passover.

Zebulon: The Hostess brand was bought by an *Investment company* that doesn't even own a bakery. They will end up sitting on the Hostess name, then trying to re-sell it to someone else for a profit.



They're likely to unload it on Con Agra like they had everything else.

Iczer: unlikely: wow no one saw that coming that's amazing i am so surprised

I'd wager there are a few idiots around the country that're wondering if they can declare bankruptcy now after spending $1,048 per Twinky on eBay...


Bancruptcy only really helps large corporations get rid of debt. That way the IP can be bought out by "someone else" (snert) that can really help the brand, help America. Without the labor debt, as God intended.

Pointy Tail of Satan: Great. Now there is going to be shortage of embalming fluid. Or did they take that out?


Nope, no shortages -  one of the owners of Hostess is the PBR guys.

PsiChick: ...That is...holy fark. Was Bush  that obvious pre-9\11? Or is this writer just psychic or something?

Saturday Night Live did a similar sketch around the 2000 election, which showed "flash forwards" of the three high-profile candidates: Gore had installed a massive bank of computers in the Oval Office, Nader was surrounded by flying pigs and earmuff-wearing devils, and Bush.. the room was a burning shambles. So yeah, some folks saw what was coming.

Yeah, if the date on that article is correct, that's amazing. I mean, it's spot-on.
