Sorta O/T No more twinkies? UPDATE

Posted by   + Show Post

 Say it isn't so, my husband would be so devastated not to have those Hostess treats on a regular basis, well that and the loads.

UPDATE, the curfew passed and now Hostess is going into Federal court tomorrow to try to start liquidation of the entire company. Companies can start closing as early as Tuesday.

 What a shame. Another company on the verge of collapse. Thanks Obama!

Wonder what they'll call the future Twinkies (made elsewhere)? Chinkies? LOL

We don't buy that stuff. We like them and all, but they make me feel like crap and I tend to eat a whole box in one or two days. Nooooope.

Yes we all knew she meant China.  Using the word "chink" is a dead give away.  If she really truly didn't think of it that way then maybe she should edit her post.

You "knew" but but you put it out there like she was calling someone a chink.  NICE..   Kind of like the ugly definition of Bless Your Heart that some people have in the back of their minds....
