    In order to save the company, we had to destroy it. Clearly the BCTGM is managed by a group of fucking idiots.

    I know it’s wrong but don’t you just want to find one of those employees that received the pink slip just before Xmas, put your arm around their shoulders and whisper in their ear “aren’t you glad you had this union? Don’t be sad your hero Obama made food stamps easy to get so you can have your Christmas Spam. God bless us everyone… oh wait, according to your leftist leaders there is no God”.
    I know, I’m being a dick but it’s so rare that a chicken comes home to roost for the unions/progs I have to say something.

    I heard from a friend in Utah that the Ogden plant didn’t want to have anything to do with this strike bullshit, but still they are out of work.

    Congratulations UNION ASSHOLES, you won!

    I’m hunting down the twinkies and ho hos locally to hoard. Can’t fine a SINGLE package today. I just sent my boy out to check on a string of gas station stop-n-shops to see if they have any.

    Fur that is wonderful. Now we know where John Gault is and I for one have no sympathy for those fools that were so dumb to allow the union bosses to lead them over the cliff.

    Hubby is in mournful shock.
    Came back from grocery shopping just now and there were still lots of chocolate cupcakes, but no Twinkies.

    Oh, well . . . Little Debbie makes a very similar product called “Cloud Cakes” that are almost as good. They are a little denser, but actually have less fat & cholesterol as I recall. Did you folks know that supposedly the Mormon church owns Little Debbie??

    Have’nt had a twinkie in over thirty years, so I don’t care.
    I read somewhere that twinkies and cockroaches would be the only survivors of thermonuclear war.
    Probably should’nt be eating the damn things.
    Twinkies that is.

    I tried to find the prevailing wage for a Union Baker, no luck. But Hostess was paying their Union shipping and receiving clerks $42 k per year plus benies. I think thats about twice the non union wage.

    My son’s going out the door now to buy what few boxes he can find of my favorite: Suzy Q’s. Hostess could have been saved if all involved had really wanted it to with real concessions. I’m not mad at the union or the company; my anger rests with the employees. For whatever your motives were or what you stood to gain, I say this to you: Because I’ll probably never again see a Suzy Q or Twinkie, never have the pleasure (along with all the health risks I don’t give a shit about)of savoring another bite, my deepest desire is to never see ANY of you motherfuckers work in another bakery again, and I hope when the unemployment runs out, you’ll will have been BLACKLISTED to guarantee that, and finally, I hope you lose: your home, your vehicle(s), your wife/husband, and your snot kids go HUNGRY! Fuckers.

    @Wyatt

    Funny you should mention coffee Wyatt. I quit three weeks ago. My stomach ulcer has gotten the best of me, so it’s extreme dieting (Chocolate milk and ANY Hostess product the exception) for now. God, I never thought I’d dread yogurt or cottage cheese so much. I guess the attacks on Israel and the Hostess demise, along with my chronic condition is causing me to lose my mind. My son came home empty handed. It’s too late. Pray for me.

    Pabst Brewing Co. owner C. Dean Metropoulos & Co. is considering an offer to buy Hostess Brands Inc., which said Friday it plans to liquidate its business.

    “Our family would love to purchase these iconic brands,” Daren Metropoulos, a principal at the private-equity firm, said in an e-mail.

    “We have analyzed this opportunity very carefully for a few years now. Shedding the complications of the unions and old plants makes it even more attractive.”

    Hostess makes Twinkies and Wonder Bread.

    “We are actively pursuing this deal as no doubt strategics will also,” he said.

    ROFLMFAO!

    Fortunately for me, in order to find and keep employment in my field, I had to give up those “habits” that fueled my insatiable appetite for Suzy-Qs.

    But just knowing that when I retire, I can’t get stoned and pig out on them is sort of saddening.

    Oh, what sad times we live in when even Wonderbread can fall to the greed of unions.

    If I were a salary worker at that company would I be pissed off or what?

    The freaking union did me out of a job too.

    To the 18K out of a good job, call all the former workers of Caterpillar in York PA. The same thing happened to them many years ago, the company closed one of its newest, most modern plants cause of the union demands. Gone, Done.

    I don’t know who you are or where you came from or what you want, but I do know you have brought hope back to me. I hope whoever buys the company forsakes not…

    How much you want to bet that if Bain Capital bought the company we would have a glut of Twinkies and Wonder Bread on the shelves right now.

    I for one hope that all union companies fail. Right now there are 10,000,000 people that will step up to fill those union jobs.

    And then we start on the government jobs.
