RIP Twinkie

Maybe the Mayans are right after all. Hostess is going out of business. Do you know what this means people? Twinkies, Ding Dongs, etc. will be no more. I will only be able to tell my grandchildren stories about the little yellow cake with cream filling. Maybe I should start stockpiling these suckers. They last forever right? I could sell them on EBay.

The truth is I will survive without chocolate cupcakes. God knows my hips will be happier. My son will eventually get over it. There are 18,500 people who are losing their jobs before the holidays. Executives blame workers for striking. Really? The company wanted to cut wages by 8% and make workers pay 20% more for health insurance. I would make a sign and walk in circles too. Most of the employees make less than $40,000. I bet the executives make a little more. The company threatened to liquidate if enough employees didn’t return to work yesterday. It didn’t happen.

Hostess was already in dire straights. I blame all you health nuts who can’t indulge in a little Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate every now and then.
