Panic as Twinkie-pocalypse approaches

As a bakers’ strike threatens to kill off the legendary snack-cake manufacturer Hostess, consumers on Twitter are pausing for a moment of reflection. With the company threatening to liquidate if workers don’t return by tonight, this could be the end of the company.

Thanks for the calorie-laden memories, Hostess:

And let us not forget that Twinkie lovers are not the only ones grieving.

Some, like St. Louis news reporter Rebecca Roberts, are scrambling to make things right while they still have the chance.

Of course, some people had to ruin the nostalgic moment by reminding us how capitalism works.

That’s probably true, but it’s still sad to see an overzealous union take down a good American company (If indeed that happens). But even if Hostess goes the way of the dinosaur, we can be assured of one thing. Someday, long after the demise of our civilization, an archaeologist will find a perfectly preserved Twinkie in its little plastic bag. While our society may have disappeared, our buildings crumbled, and our culture vanished, that Twinkie will still be as edible as the day it rolled out of the factory.

Hostess may go down, but the Twinkie is forevah.

    “overzealous union” is a redundancy.

    Michelle Obama looks like she eats her fair share of Twinkies. Someone with a rear that big shouldn’t tell others how to eat.

    Gonna suck for all the dope smokers without a good old fashioned Twinkie to get rid of the munchies. Especially since obamass legalized pot (according to earlier blog) and we have so many new foodstamp shoppers that could be buying them up!

    this MUST be what libs want. no jobs for anyone, ya think? there is no other explanation for it. Obamacare is killing jobs left and right cuz employers can’t afford full time employees plus manditory healhcare costs and the freaking unions bully companies into outrageous requests until they shut down the very company that is providing them money. I swear to God I hate liberals and I will NEVER undertand them. Do they NOT understand that if there aren’t people out there working to pay the taxes that pay for their welfare that they will starve? what about that is so hard to understand?

    and when libs succeed at taking this country down to the bottom, they will find a way to blame the republicans.. just wait and see.

    Never mind the jobs we’re losing, the demise of the Twinkie would definitely make FLOTUS Mooch very very happy.

      I don’t think so. She looks like she has a secret love for Hostess or some snack company.. #badonkadonk

  • EastValleyConservative

    I can’t think of anyone other than the Chinese who would be able (or willing) to buy this under this economy and this administration. Oh boy–fortune Twinkies! Instead of creme filling, you get a piece of paper with a redundant vague cliche.
