Ha ha. But I hear we have two chances to still have Twinkies:

1) Hostess and the union have agreed to mediation. So hopefully that will work and employees will value their salaries and benefits higher than 73 weeks of unemployment payments at a fraction of their pay.

2) If that doesn't work, several international companies are interested in purchasing Hostess.

But most importantly (I am kidding) - Are Twinkies still in the stores??

 I'd heard there was a run on 'em.

And they'll be good, for what? - 100 years? Maybe we should bequeath them to the next generation.

Today on The Five, Greg Gutfeld blended up some Twinkie milkshakes. He said that since Hostess Inc. may be liquidizing their inventory, he thought he would help out by liquidizing Twinkies. Bob Beckel drank a whole glass and had to run off the set.
