Where's Obama when we really need him?
He bailed out the banks and the automakers.
Now it's time to save the TWINKIE.

Hilarious article! Thanks for writing it! I laughed until I cried! I hope Hostess can make a come back. I never ate many twinkies but I loved those styrofoam bars infused with glue,dipped in chocolate flavored wax things!

So funny. But, I know for a fact that twinkies will go moldy. I was rather bummed when I found a twinkie in my desk drawer only to discover that there was mold growing on it.

Eliminating Ding Dongs must be what did them in. Chocodiles could never compare with the creamy goodness of a Ding Dong!

George W. Bush signed the Wall Street Bail outs and the Auto bail outs.

You want a corporate hand out?

Go to the Republican party.

Well sure, Hostess deserves a government bailout. The French did it for the Danone yogurt company (which was threatened with being bought by, horrors, an American company), and surely Hostess Twinkies is the American equivalent of French yogurt.

Heh.

Wonder bread builds strong bodies 12 ways. With all the wars our country manages to get itself into goodness knows we need strong bodies.

I say give them a bailout.

Twinkies are one of the basic food groups.

Hostess went bankrupt amazingly just like GM primarily because of unions and legacy costs. Truck drivers were not even allowed to unload the delecacies in many localities.

There's no discussion topic so banal we can't drag politics into it.

Maybe this will be a turning point for them and they can actually sell something that is healthy!

When I was a kid, my favorite after-school snack (purchased from a little store on the way home) was a Twinkie and an ice-cold Coke! Now that I've joined Medicare, and "come to grips" with my impending mortality (!!), I'm forced to eat healthier foods...I subscribe to the thoughts of my neighbor, who reminded me, "If I had known I was going to live this long, I would've taken better care of myself!"
