Yup - it's a sad day indeed. I have a t-shirt that says "Save the Twinkies" that I'm wearing for my upcoming show, and will be dedicating a song to Hostess.

Twinkies last a century (or so goes the rumor), so stocking up on them is a funny as heck irony. In all likelihood though, especially with all the news press, they will be bought out by another company and Twinkies will ive, just under another a name.

sigh.
