    nice and simple, even the ’baggers might understand it.

    If this wasn’t so true, it would be funny… but then irony is not always humorous.

    Twinkies are just Wonder Bread, sugared-up breakfast cereals, soda pop, and all the other crap America maufactures to make a buck on kids and suckers…if only wholesome foods makers had as much to spend on advertising maybe Yanks would be a bit healthier.

    All businessmen are by definition greedy bastards since Marx taught us that they get rich off the backs of the down-trodden. Of course there’s never any such thing as a greedy union. Geez, where did you Lefties learn this stuff? No, really…where?

    In the case of Hostess, it never was the unions….

    if you weren’t so busy watching faux noise, you might do some actual research and find everything in this strip today is true and actually happened. not only tht, the company emerged from bankruptcy with even MORE, debt than when it entered. what braniac does that? even GM shed debt and is now profitable. your a veritable genius for ignoring the obvious and ignoring facts. something faux news viewers are well known for.

    What about just making a better product consumers will actually pay for? I can only see getting rid of Hostess as a good thing, it’s just garbage.

    Don’t worry; it’s just the cliff-hanger. In the exciting conclusion, Captain Industry saves the day by giving himself a multi-million dollar “incentive” bonus before the company goes into liquidation. Evil is vanquished!

    When the Hostess CEO triples his own pay while crying that the unions are bleeding him dry, and then demands $1.8 million in bonuses for management during the liquidation process, one might suspect there’s just a teensy bit of greed involved.

    The Invisible Hand of the Free Market has spoken. Isn’t that how it’s supposed to work?

    What amuses me is how union-bashers want to take away what unions have negotiated for, rather than asking, “How can I get me some of that?”

    I always and I mean ALWAYS liked the Hostess Lemon Snack Pie. As the name suggests, it was a wonderful snack.
    People are often astounded when I say “lemon pie” because the apple and the cherry were far more popular and I understand.
    But when I’m spending my hard-earned money on a snack pie, I need it to be delicious and satisfying … and lemon never let me down.

    And now that they’re folding the company (bonuses for taking the company out of business? Srsly?) International Bakeries will sell the rights to manufacture their no-longer-popular products to someone else. And the execs will get bonuses for that, too.

    The greatest tragedy off the closing the demise of Hostess Twinkies is that it comes at the precise moment when pot has been legalized in Washington state !

    Store bought goodies will never beat the home baked variety. Besides, if one is high, one doesn’t even care if the bottoms of the cookies are singed.
