2. It sure does!
:hi: I think the high cost of gasoline had a great deal to do with it. I also hate how ABC only mentions the high cost of labor in the description. :grr:

3. I love how they talk about the "high cost of labor" while the video shows
an automated production line, with all the labor being done by machines.

4. Thanks for noticing...
That's really disgusting! I hope people realize how much we need Unions, now, more than ever...
They're saying "unions killed the Twinkie" Sad.
Here is an example from a terrible fox business show. I hope Keith Olbermann sees this: http://news.yahoo.com/twinkies-maker-hostess-seeks-bankruptcy-protection-132243669.html

5. In related news, programmers mourn.
A key ingredient in software development will soon be gone. The Mayans were right about 2012. We are doomed.

8. And what about the Twinkie defense?
Let's face it: "I killed the mayor and a supervisor because I ate a bagel" just won't cut it.

9. Yeah, here's the slogan: "Keep your Mitts off of my Ho Hos."
Then I guess we'd be in for a real Snowball fight.

Mmm, sarcasm buttons sound good -- available in both chocolate and vanilla? ;-)
