Out of the Blue

BusinessWeek has word that Hostess Brands is prepping for bankruptcy (thanks Ant via Boing Boing). I can't tell you the last time I had a Twinkie, but for some reason this makes me picture ending up on a crazed quest like the Woody Harrelson character in Zombieland.

I feel bad for all those people losing their jobs. That's tragic in this economy. Maybe there's a silver lining, though: perhaps the diabetes rate will drop?

I never quite understood Woody's character in Zombieland. Really? You're on a quest for a twinkie?

At least the kid was on a quest for pussy. That's a more understandable motivation.

Twinkies don't say no, or talk back :P.

My father loved those.

I bet your father and I would get along famously. Never was a twinky guy myself. I'd maybe pick up a pack of powdered mini donuts on rare occasion. But I can eat 5 packs of pink Snoballs in one sitting easy. Hmmm, wonder if this means we won't be seeing the green ones come St. Patricks?

Fret not little Learning, you'll never be alone. There will always be those Twinkies, you ate over the last 40 years, stuck to your heart.
 
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

Over 30 years ago I was eating a hostess cupcake as I walked through a back passageway at the power plant I worked in.I took the paper that the cupcake was on and slapped it aginst the wall where it stuck for no less then 4 years.I retired last year and before I left for the last time I took a walk through the area and there was still a circle on the cement wall from that cupcake after more that 30 years.Lets see some health food beat that.
That's quite impressive. I hope the cupcake itself didn't leave a mark on you.

Operations in 49 states with annual sales about $2 billion, and they are $860 million in debt? They can blame high labor expenses and rising ingredient costs all they want; it sounds like mismanagement and top heavy salaries & bonuses to me. Sad!
