    Anybody really care about the ‘fiscal cliff’ when there is a ‘Ding Dong Cliff’ looming? Yikes!!

    First Mitt, now the Twinkie. Farewell, spongy, bland, artificial remnants of another era.

    RIP Hostess. Eating a turducken of Twinkies and Ho Hos wrapped in Wonder Bread in your memory.

    The worst part about the #Hostess liquidation? The#Twinkies brand will be sold, and will now be cheap, low-quality junk.Oh wait...

    In my last tweet, my phone autocorrected "Twinkies" to "Twinkles." I guess Apple wasted no time in trying to pretend Twinkies never existed.

    Lesson learned last night - my memory of the taste of Twinkies is much better than the actual taste of Twinkies.

    Stop crying about twinkies. There's vodka. There's still lots and lots of vodka.

    A world without Twinkies was the original pitch for Revolution. NBC changed it because it seemed too impossible. The aftermath too savage.

    #Twinkies are gone & with one fell swoop, Zombieland is now a period piece.

    Didn't get it at the time but those scenes of Lincoln cramming Hostess Zingers into his mouth now seem oddly prescient. Kudos, Spielberg

    Worst part about #Hostess news is now that smug &$*%! Little Debbie gets to walk around like she's God's gift to snack cakes.

    I'm thinking we should start a bootleg bakery that makes clandestine Twinkies. We'll call ourselves "Twinkshiners". Who's in?

    I found a good recipe for Twinkies, but it's really hard to replicate the self loathing.

    Why do banks get a bailout and Hostess doesn't? They've both been accused of causing inflation.

    You misspelled "delicious." RT @darrenrovell: I'd say the most shocking ingredient in a Twinkie is probably "beef fat"

    There is no need to stock up on Twinkies when hundreds of them are still intact inside your stomach.

    It's pretty clear that the Hostess plants closing is upsetting people more than Gaza, the elections, or global warming combined.

    All of the cars are starting to look like Hostess products and the people look like Twinkies. This is going to be harder than I thought.

    Twinkies contain polysorbate 60--a highly flammable material that was used in grenades during the Vietnam War. You'll live without Hostess.

    Being phallic-shaped, cream-filled and good with rope, Twinkie the Kid's post-Hostess career seems predetermined.

    According to the market as of now, I've eaten 3.7 million dollars worth of Twinkies in my entire life.

    I wonder how much they want for that machine that shoots the creamy filling into the Twinkies?
