I’m sure you have all heard the devastating news, but Hostess has announced that they will be liquidating assets and shutting down production. Whatever the reasons, and there are other places you can go to discuss them, we can all agree on one thing. This is a national tragedy. I have had great difficulty dealing with the news today and I’m hoping that our national leaders get together to rectify this situation.
A United States of America that doesn’t have Ding Dongs just is not the United States that I grew up in. One can’t help but wonder if this is the opening move of some evil plot to take over America or, even worse, it is the beginning of the events that will lead to the end of the world on December 21. Nothing can be taken off the table at this point and all options need to be considered.
Because the supply of precious Ding Dongs is now limited. I am going to go in to full Elaine Benes (linking this all back to TV because it’s what we do here) mode and buy up as many of them as I can and strictly ration them out to myself when I deem myself worthy.
I don’t know how long I will be able to hold out. I only hope that I can hang on until cooler heads prevail. If not, I want to world to know that I went down fighting.
