No more Twinkies®?

You remember the joke about the only two things that would survive al all-out nuclear war?  Cockroaches and Twinkies.

Well, cockroaches may be left with nothing to eat.  Hostess is threatening to liquidate their entire company if striking workers don’t go back to work today.

No Twinkies?  What would a world without Twinkies be like?

I'm not sure I can recall when I last had a Twinkie, actually.

Me either, come to think of it.

umm - what's a Twinkie? and would the world be worse off without it?

The Twinkie is a snack cake (see above picture) that is notoriously lacking in any nutritional value whatsoever and full of calories. Urban legend says that the Twinkie is indestructible, would remain edible for hundreds of years and could survive a nuclear blast.

I do feel rather bad that 600 or so Utah workers are likely to lose their jobs if the company goes under.
