    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I bought some apple juice once and when I got it home I saw it was made in China, I poured it down the sink.

    I guess my enamel must be tough. To me, they are nirvana in the form of junk food.

    See, for me it's thinks like Jolly Ranchers. I can just FEEL my teeth being eaten away, after one of those things.

    It would probably be a good buy for Nestle considering their growing inability to avoid recalls in its current lines of production.

    Looks like 3 of them have shut their doors forever... Another Union success story...


    Hostess closing 3 bakeries following strike
    By Sarah Skidmore, Associated Press

    (AP) - Hostess Brands Inc. is permanently closing three bakeries following a nationwide strike by its bakers union.

    The maker of Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread said Monday that the strike has prevented it from producing and delivering products, and it is closing bakeries in Seattle, St. Louis and Cincinnati. The facilities employ 627 workers.

    Hostess, based in Irving, Texas, operates 36 bakeries nationwide and has about 18,300 employees. It warned earlier this month that the strike, by about 30 percent of its workforce, could lead to bakery closures.

    I predict that riotous mayhem will ensue if Americans no longer have access to Twinkies. We may even have a nuclear holocaust.
