Breaking News

News that Hostess products would soon disappear from grocery shelves, and the almost certain layoff of 18,500 employees, has had much of the nation in a tailspin. There has been a hue and cry from the general public, demanding that the government do something about the potential confectionery loss.

A source deep within the current administration has provided confidential information to this writer, requesting only that the name of the source, and the federal agency for which he or she works, will remain anonymous. I have agreed to those terms.

Although no one knows for sure what will happen in mediation, it is known that if mediation fails the case will be sent back to the courts for a judicial decision as to whether the Hostess Company can close its doors FOREVER in bankruptcy.

Should that occur, I am assured that the government will swiftly swing into action as follows:

1. The State Department stands ready to hire all the Twinkies.
2. The Secret Service will hire all of the Ho Hos.
3. The generals within the Department of Defense are already sleeping with the Cupcakes.
4. The voters recently sent all the Ding Dongs to Congress.

So there you go. Never let it be said that your government does not stand by fearlessly, ready to jump into the fray whenever the public demands that it should do so.

  1. I was tempted to go buy some Twinkies when I heard this news!

  2. Too funny! I was never into Twinkies, but I confess I was rather partial to those Ding Dongs. I hear another company might buy them. Actually, they're not very good for us, are they?

    1. I'm with you on the Ding Dongs. And the Hostess Pies, chocolate-covered Donettes-in the shuffle no one's mentioned those.
