The end for Twinkies may just be hours away. Hostess Brands Inc., the maker of the iconic snack, announced on Wednesday that it will liquidate the entire company if not enough striking employees return to work by Thursday evening.

    So you would prefer to be out of work in this economy.

    Really bright after 13,000 agree to the deal you and the other 4999 rats screw it up because you didn't want to hold off for a couple of years.

    Brilliant, I'm sure they appreciate that move. Now 18,000 don't have a job because 5,000 threw a hissy fit.

    By the way, as a former Naval Officer I can assure you there are more rats going down with the ship than People. We have plenty of life rafts and train for evacuation.

    So unless you shot yourself in the head, you would just be waiting for the rescue unit to follow the beacon to your raft.

    I saw one guy that got layed off that he was never taking another union job in his life. To say he was pissed would be a huge understatement.

    He was probably one of the reasonable ones
    and he paid for the greed of the others.

    What do you expect from dumb poorly educated union members! I'll miss Chocodiles. They were hard to find before and now they might just be a thing of the past! It should be kick a AFL/CIO member in the ass day!

    It doesnt matter now, Hostess has fired the union strikers because they didnt come back to work and will now sell the company....I doubt the new owners will hire those union slugs back. LOL!

    Loved peeling that chocolate cap off and eating it last. Haven't had one in 20 years though. If I indulge, it's going to be something that's worth it.

    None! Reading the labels of contents it was easy to determine that these are an unnatural, inadequate, and even risky source of nutrition! (No fiber, high sugar content, preservatives...)

    Sometimes, I eat snack cakes for the sole purpose of irritating people like you. Trolling never tasted so good.

    When you find that cure for death, get back with me.

    But no more, I guess. (Chocolate only, with 7 squiggles across the top)

    Maybe they'll sing that song by Woody Guthrie, "I'm sticking to the union" as they march out that door and get on unemployment (now limited in time) and lose their houses. Hey, it's only about 18,500 at one time. Guess I'll have to stick to Table Talk pies and Entenmann's. Maybe they can migrate there.

    That was always my favorite. But if Hostess goes into liquidation, I won't mourn its passing. I don't recommend them anymore. All those chemicals! All that sugar! Blllllip! (Up you go!) Blllllllap! (Crash!)

    Take it from someone who found out the hard way. Lay off the sugar for a few days, and after awhile, you'll lose your taste for it.

    And: I seem to recall that a man who killed the Mayor of San Francisco, and a certain Supervisor whom I will not name here, "got off" because his lawyer said he had driven himself "temporarily insane" from chowing down on the Twinkies before he went out and did his deed. Must've been riding the sugar high. I could almost believe it. (Except that his eating something that would drive him to distraction was his own fault.)

    NONE of them. They really do not taste all that good, and they are so bad for you. I do not understand why people eat this junk.
