If they're smaller, shouldn't we call them Twinks?

A change in recipe also extended the shelf-life of Twinkies to 45 days from their previous 26-day shelf-life

WTF?  I thought twinkies were supposed to last forever, so that survivors of WWIII could live off them in their bunkers.  I feel betrayed.

I'll try one of the new Twinkies just as soon as I finish another train load of Kandy Kakes.

Did the price adjust accordingly? Unless there is war rationing, no one is stopping you from buying two boxes or fifteen.

wierd question here: shouldn't that be "Queue the outrage".  Cue is either a prompt given to a stage performer or a stick you use in billiards.  So I guess if you are prompting people to have outrage, it makes sense.  If you are asking for outrage line up, it would be queue.

File bankruptcy to break the union, wait, come back with smaller Twinkies and less workers. Hostess the all american company! Fark over as many as you can, as long as long as the shareholders get theirs, that is the american way.

cue1 [kyoo] Show IPA noun, verb, cued, cu·ing. noun
1. anything said or done, on or off stage, that is followed by a specific  or action: An off-stage door slam was his cue to enter.
2. anything that excites to action; stimulus.
3. a hint; intimation; guiding suggestion.
4. the part a person is to play; a prescribed or necessary course of action. 5. a sensory signal used to identify experiences, facilitate memory, or  responses.

Definition #2 applies. (dictionary.com)

I don't think "line up the outrage" is correct, which is what "Queue the outrage" would mean.

I'd be willing to bet that a lot of Gen-Xers who biatched about Twinkies going away hadn't eaten a Twinkie since childhood.

"They are exactly the same size as they were when the old company went out of business last year," said a spokesperson trained in the fine art of Technical Correctness.

An 8% mass reduction without a corresponding reduction in dimensional size (and by extension, volume) implies a lower density. Whether that lower density was achieved by adding more air to the cake, more air to the filling, and/or altering the ratio of filling to cake. In any case, the Twinkie of 2013 is not the same as the Twinkie of 2011.

That's not necessarily a bad thing. A change that slight would be difficult to detect, especially after the length of time since any consumer has had a fresh Twinkie. During the hiatus, they may have tested various recipes and come up with something that a focus group found indistinguishable from the regular Twinkie at a rate explainable by random chance. It's possible that the alteration(s) to the recipe may have subtly improved it, even if the motivation was to boost profit margins by reducing its mass.

My sister in law got pulled over one time years ago for doing this. She didn't get a ticket or anything but the cop asked her if she thought she was Paul Revere. I found that amusing.
 
2013-07-15 02:57:16 PM
Bah..  7-11 did this a while back.  We had glorious 44 ounce Super Big Gulps.  During the Great Banking Crisis of 2009, 7-11 took the opportunity to downsize a Super Big Gulp to 40 ounces.  Luckily, I received a couple of souveneir hard plastic cups that were still 44 ounce.
so I still get my 44 ounce refill.

The only problem is that on some days, I now have a cup on my desk that has a big muscular black man in WWE speedo.

Some "people" actually deleted some of those posts in a past thread and commented "That's enough" and also more than not, folks were just being pissy babies about it.

Common shareholders get their money after any bondholders.  This means they get zero.   I doubt they got theirs.

the only thing that is worse than that, is if Mr Obama is running the bankruptcy.  In this case, he gives the union members a cut in line so that the bondholders get shafted first.
