National Strike Prompts Possible Liquidation at Hostess

You hear that? It’s the collective scream of tens of thousands of stoners and fat guys screaming out in abject terror at the possible liquidation of cake and pie manufacturer, Hostess Brands Inc. Workers at the troubled company’s plants went on strike across the country this past Friday to protest pay cuts, which prompted a liquidation threat from the bosses. The union has no comment, and if the workers don’t get back to work by 5 p.m. today, Hostess, as of Friday, will be no more. A dangerous prospect, considering that some people will do anything for a Twinkie. [HuffPo]
