I laughed when I looked at my latest poll trying to address my issues - it said something about a Twinkie.

I heard a Mexican company might buy the brand name.

'El Twinkies'?

My neighbor use to make these: buy ding dongs freeze them til they were firm
melt chocolate chips, sweeten
roll the ding dongs in the chocolate
then roll them in nuts...(cause she knew I liked them)
She'd come over when she was depressed and say,
"I need to talk"

They were sinfully delicious I tried to give her the best advice I could so she would not make more!!! lol

I dont crave twinkies.I detest unions.All unions should be abolished.All we need is a set of laws for companys to go by without the money hungary unions shaking companys down without the workers best interest in mind.This should be a wake up call for all unions.Your days are numbered.

Since twinkies will still be available here, I'm starting my own twinkie cartel and I'm looking to recruit soldiers and a cigarette boat.

And now a foreign company can buy the brand name and move to Mexico. Those 18,500 people that lost their jobs should thank their unions for their situation.

Unions put another great company out of business. You can't carry bread and Twinkies on the same truck :(

Those cigarette boats are hard to light once you get them wet.

Ya know, Crain, a company can only rape and pillage itself so many times before it just gets silly.

So, you- as a corporate spokesperson- can now explain how bonus's to the executives (including $2 MILLION to the CEO) were a bad thing...for the Union to do.

Go on, Crain. Absolutely EVERY m-effing thing that happens these days is turned into "US v. THEM!" by you corksoakers so, tell us how Unions forced scumbag vulture capitalists to rape and pillage a company AND profit greatly from it. Do go on....

They did admit that paying pensions to over 19,000 union employees contributed to a large portion of the bankruptcy filing - that and America's divergence from bread and sweets.

Think flex America - think flex.

I'll help you smuggle them. I don't particularly like them but I could use the danger pay.

You know what they said in Scarface, don't get high on your own supply.
