    President Obama likes twinkies. (Another double entendre?) ;-)

  3. Now that the company is bust what actually happens to the healthcare plans and pensions of its 18,500 workers?

    The word of 18.5k losing there jobs doesn’t sound so bad when you consider almost every 7-Eleven, grocery store, gas station and convenience center has carried their products for decades. Add the Hostess truck drivers, sales middlemen and fleet support and we’ve lost 88,000 jobs!
