How to Survive in a Post-Twinkie World


So that's it. It's finished. Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Wonder Bread are gone. Michelle never wanted us to have them in the first place. And now the bakers' union won't let workers accept an 8% pay cut that Hostess said it had to have for the business to break even. So the union would rather have all 18,500 employees lose their jobs.

That's what's happened. 18,500 people are out of work. And you and I will never have another Twinkie or Ding Dong. The next generation will never taste the goodness.

It is a very sad day.

If you love Twinkies or Dingdongs, you better go grab as many as you can from your local grocer. Oh, and Chocodiles. Don't forget the Chocodiles.

Tevya, too late. They're all gone from the stores I've been to today.
