Hostess Going Out Of Business! No More Twinkies!
"Hostess, the makers of Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread, is going out of business after striking workers failed to heed a Thursday deadline to return to work, the company said.
'We deeply regret the necessity of today's decision, but we do not have the financial resources to weather an extended nationwide strike,'"
I grew up in poverty, but my siblings and I could afford to play marbles, fly kites and eat Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder bread and butter sandwiches.
Feasting on Twinkies is an indelible part of my childhood, if I was starving and God dropped manna from heaven, I would complain that He didn't drop heavenly Twinkies.
The contract that the union workers turned down was imposed by an impartial entity: A bankruptcy court. There is a special place reserved in hell for these greedy bastards who have destroyed a cherished company.
Zombie attacks on the increase, the popularity of Honey Boo Boo Child and now the death of Twinkies. The End of the World is nigh!
