f*ck...f*ck...sh*t, f*ck! f*ck sh*t!

I literally don't want to live on this planet anymore...besides, I hear they got unlimited twinkies on Saturn.

Gotta love people blaming the unions for bringing down Hostess. If a company wanted to cut my salary by 8% just to stay "profitable" while the executive staff got astronomical raises, I'd probably strike, too.

So now 18,000 people are out of work, thanks once again, to corporate greed.

They can take their embalmed diabetus cakes and stuff them up their buttholes.

You ignore increased competition and the trend towards healthier snacks, as well as Hostess going into bankruptcy twice in the last ten years. On the other hand, Hostess could have just sold itself to some other company, but didn't.

When the country's obesity rate starts going down or even stabilizes, then I'll believe healthier snacks have indeed usurped the Ho-Ho.

Slight misnomer there, it's actually unlimited titty sprinkles that they have.

Well, I'd like to have something clever to go here, but the only point i'd like to make is that because I'm a great big fat person, I impulse bought a box of Little Debbie "football brownies" on my trip last week, and again impulse bought some cherry cordial cakes when grocery shopping at Target. And of course I do this when I'm trying to get myself into the mindset of losing some weight. :roll: How I've made it this far in my life without becoming diabetic, I have no idea.

Call me crazy (or totally sane) but I never liked Twinkies or the other Hostess varieties. I grew up in a Little Debbie family.

One things for sure, Fatass will be pissed by this news.

We bought some Hostess Cupcakes. They're really good. But nothing beats the Twinky. I wish I had some Twinkies. :(

Oh, and George Takei had a bunch of humorous photos on the subject. "December 21, 2012? Why is the calendar ending on that day?" -"No more, Twinkies." (Well played, Mayans. lol)

Stop panicking.

First off, I must say that Twinkies are one of the most atrocious things I have ever eaten. I'm more concerned about the existence of Ho-Hos, Cup Cakes, and Ding Dongs which I loved as a kid and still do to this day.

However, what is probably THE most horrible thing I have ever eaten besides an immature pecan nut, was an orange Cup Cake. I have never, ever in my entire life had such a disgusting taste in my mouth before, and I sucked a friend's dick when I was 13.

I'm not gonna ask why. At any rate, that's good news. (I couldn't click on the link while at school. Yahoo's pretty much blocked there. Sorry.)

I do prefer the cupcakes, ho-hos and ding dongs over the twinkie. You know, I've never had a deep fried twinkie either. Still dont' think I will either.
