Did you guys know that twinkies were originally filled with a banana filling? Trivia betches.

OK found it. Possibly saved? Not sure.

At the very least the judge seems to flat out object to the planned paying out of bonuses and a lot of other sketchy things Hostess management was planning.

Yeah I was going to say the same thing. $2 million for 19 managers I think?

Only $105,000 per person.

Even if the payout was five bucks per person they don't deserve it. You don't deserve a bonus for losing your company.

Tribute to Twinkies. Have you guys seen the move with Shia LeBouf(sp?) called Disturbia? Well, he starts to build a Twinkie tower with glue and Twinkies near the beginning of scenes showing him under house arrest. Now that the company has gone out of business . . . what a waste of good Twinkies. Did anyone enjoy eating them?
