From Business Week:
Hostess in a statement today blamed the latest bankruptcy on a weak economy and costs tied to pension- and medical-benefit obligations. The Irving, Texas-based baker intends to withdraw from pension plans and modify collective-bargaining agreements with unions, according to court documents.


What will happen to the Twinkies?!

It seems these days everybody's blaming worker pensions, even though it's also obviously financial mismanagement. I'd like to see the real reasons on how Hostess got itself into a nearly billion dollar hole.

I rarely eat any junk food. When I do have something unhealthy I'd rather it be a beer or some pizza or a burger etc. than junk food snacks. Never cared much for sweets, potato chips etc.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

This is true. Now if you're a fat Fuck who can't control him/herself and eats like a swine bastard, then yes, there's a problem with your choices. This applies to everything though, not just Hostess stuffs mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm damn

How so? Wouldn't America be better off if everyone could intake unhealthy food in moderation rather than cut it off from everyone altogether?

You forgot Nutty Bars! But yes, I agree, Zebra Cakes, Oatmeal Creme Cookies, and Nutty Bars are better than Twinkies, which I haven't been able to stomach since before I finished high school.

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.


I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D

Yes! It's happening again. I really blame the management and their golden parachutes.
And they're closing. The employees get fucked, and the execs get off scot free.

Honestly, both parties are to blame here. The unions were absolutely stupid to think they had a leg to stand on when Hostess was shutting down striking plants. The corporate raiders are also equally to blame as they've had misstep after misstep in managing the company itself.

Ultimately the management does win here, because they just released themselves from a 2 billion dollar pension liability.

Fuck the "junk food elitists" who will tell you their stuff was horrible anyway - if I can't drunkenly wander in to a Speedway or 7-11 and get one of those apple pie things at 3 am, this is a less satisfactory world we live in.

Yes all fast food companies in the US getting shut down would be amazing :roll:. Let us, of course, completely ignore the fact that millions of jobs would be lost. Who cares if people are fat? That is their problem, not yours. If they want to be fat let them. Its a free country. I personally enjoy being in shape, but that doesn't go for everyone. Lazy people will continue to be lazy regardless of what they eat. If KaneRobot wants to drunkly stumble into 7-11 at 3 am and get himself a snack, then by god, let him.
