Death of the Twinkie.

Twinkies

I wonder if the Mayans knew about this?

Could they have possibly foreseen the closing of Hostess from afar?

Could this yet be another sign that the apocalypse is indeed upon us?

What will we eat? =P

Woody Harrelson gets some Twinkies

It’s seems just like yesterday that the promise of Twinkies surviving the zombie apocalypse would be there to sustain the human race but now all of that has turned on a dime, and a very sad one at that. Woody Harrelson must be beside himself today, I can’t even begin to imagine his pain.

It’s just something so symbolic of many of our childhoods and adulthoods for that matter as I learned today that Mike Golic considers the Hostess family of pastries to be an actual food group =D. I remember the fruit pies (I loved those when I was little!!!), Ding Dongs (not yet politically incorrect back then =P), the Ho~Ho’s (back when ho’s were just Ho Ho’s and not ho’s =P), the Cup Cakes with that iconic stripe of white frosting and of course their most iconic product the ever popular Twinkie~*. And now we’ll never know what exactly that white filling stuff  is actually made up of kidding xD! In all seriousness though it’s a really sad day as a long standing business is closing and so many jobs will be lost as a result =(. It’s just weird to think that the Twinkie will be no more.

Mike and Mike in the Morning pay tribute to the Twinkie

~Mike and Mike pay tribute to the Twinkie~

I posted a short while back how entertaining I find the radio personalities of Mike and Mike in the Morning (along with their ‘is Batman really a superhero? discussion’) and with this second posting here’s a little clip where the duo pay tribute to the death of the Twinkie (That’d be Mike Golic’s favorite, on the right) by playing an old school game of theirs where Golic would shove doughnuts (in the past) into his mouth and then try to speak a phrase and listeners would then phone in trying to identify correctly what exactly he had just said =)! On this day though it’s Twinkies which Golic is gobbling down and with his first attempt at speaking I had absolutely no idea of what he was saying at all…not a single word lol however it does become a bit more understandable with his second attempt at the very same phrase and the phrase in itself is pretty funny…(^q^)!

Goodbye Twinkie and all of your pals.

=(

    The Aztecs must have known something!! :p I loved Twinkies too! I suspect all these products will be licensed to another company in the bankruptcy proceedings but it won’t be the same! 😦

    At least our birthdays come before the apocalypse !! I just had mine yesterday 😉
