Hostess (Twinkies!) to liquidate if bakers' strike continues through Thursday

PolygamousRanchKid (1290638) writes "Hostess Brands said Wednesday that it will go into liquidation unless bakers striking in protest against a new contract imposed in bankruptcy court return to work by the end of the day Thursday.

Even if Hostess does end up in liquidation, analysts say that some of its most iconic brand names — Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread, to name a few — will likely live on, getting scooped up at auction and attached to products from other companies"

But they will only be twinkies by name and not twinkies by design.

Could Zombieland be prophetic in their comment that one day there will be no more twinkies? If so, could zombieland itself be a sign of the future?

Hmmm. I guess it's time to nut up or shut up.
