Hitting the fan.

Israel is on the brink of war, the world is on the brink of fiscal collapse, and now I won't have Twinkies to get me through, so I am on the brink of sanity.

What the HELL is going on with the world??

These really are the end times. I am completely convinced of it. Don't try to tell me different.


  1. If I coud still eat grain products, it would be the Ho-Hos I'd miss more than the Twinkies.

    I lived in Ireland for eight years and watched the unions there pull this stunt several times. You'd think after the first time, they'd get the idea. I mean, what part of "We don't have the money, your accountants are welcome to see the books and try to find some" do they not understand?

    1. I just read another article on this, and apparently the Teamsters actually did look at the books, agreed with the company, crossed the picket lines, and tried to convince the Bakers to get with the program.

      So credit where credit is due, the Teamsters seem to have been on the side of the angels for once.

    2. Ho Ho's were perfect because they had the right combo of waxy chocolate covering to cake and cream inside.

      I love the powdered sugar donuts. Could NOT get enough of those.

      Remember the TV commercial - "Keep'em home with Hostess?" My mother believed that will all her heart. HAHAHAHA!

  2. Must be the end of the world. It's even got the traditional signs and portents.

  3. I don't know about the side of the angels, but yeah, they can sure recognize that a shutdown means no more dues from those union members.

  4. In poker, that's called betting towards an inside straight. Unfortunately, the player with all the money decided to fold.

    Meanwhile, the Twinkie Kid will probably turn to alcohol and his wretched life will end in misery.

    As far as Israel is concerned, they'll fight to the end, which means a lot of Arabs will find they're not playing with amateurs.
