Obligatory Twinkies Moment
The company that put the white bread in "white bread America" (Wonder) and the junk in junk food (Ding Dongs) for nearly a century has filed for bankruptcy. It seems the unions couldn't handle something like an eight percent pay cut. So the Hostess Brands company had no choice but to make the unions an offer they couldn't refuse -- a one hundred percent pay cut for an estimated 18,500 workers.
Hey, you roll the dice, you take your chances, huh, guys?
It has been speculated that someone will invariably buy the rights to the formula for -- no, not Wonder Bread, but Twinkies! It's either that, or the White House responds to a petition to save America from junk food deprivation.
We the undersigned, hereby request Barack Obama to immediately Nationalize the Twinkie industry and prevent our nation from losing her sweet creamy center.
You know what they say: “Too big to fail!”
