It's time once again for Pop Culture Frenzy! Round 3. Now to our question.
Hostess has stopped making Twinkies. Why?
Michael Moore ate their inventory?
Hostmaster: incorrect. Cyndi?
Twinkies are like, really bad for you.
Hostmaster: uh huh. Fluffy?
Union demands forced them to close?
Hostmaster: close. Molly?
Union members ate all the Twinkies?
Hostmaster: incorrect. Fluffy?
Rather than declare bankruptcy again, Hostess decided to go out of business because they couldn't afford to stay in business if they gave in to the Bakers demands to a 17% increase employer contribution towards health care benefits. I think they are in a holding pattern now though, the matter is in mediation or something.
Didn't Hostess get an obamacare waiver?
Hostmaster: I ask the questions around here! Um. Did Hostess get an obamacare waiver?
If they did, it would appear that obamacare waivers have expiration dates.
Twinkies are really bad for you. They are full of chemicals.
You can tell by their long expiration date.
But isn't Hostess too big to fail?
You're thinking of Michael Moore.
Twinkies are really bad for you. They are full of fat.
Is everybody thinking of Michael Moore?!
Hostmaster: No more questions!
This is the end of Round 3.
And Michael Moore wept, for there were no more Twinkies left to conquer.
