looks like the worlds not ending after all

Edit: Hey GoJays I see you changed your signature. Was it originally until the Maple Leafs won the stanley cup that you would leave it?

No, December 21st the world's ending. It's happening, sorry to break it to you.

Well, not really that sorry, I've got $50 on it ending. Not my wisest bet, but...

I was going to leave it the same until the Leafs won the Stanley Cup. I realized very soon that it was solely a pipe dream, and that it would never happen.

It's still in the running to become my new signature. Tough to beat out "Luke, I am your signature" or "Signature 3:16 Says I Just Kicked Your Ass", but it has a shot .

Flowers isn't far from me. I buy bread from their thrift store. I believe they are the largest bakery in the US.

Anybody that thought they were going away was nuts to being with.

Plus it's not like there are even any proprietary ingredients in Twinkies. Anybody can recreate them in their kitchen.

Still going to be a little while until they hit stores again, you don't just sell something like that and then have factories up and running with the product overnight

I don't think there was ever any doubt that Twinkees would live on, it's just a matter of when it will happen

My buddy went to all the grocery stores in our town in hoping to grab some some to sell on Ebay. Every place was sold out.

And the company is not going out of business (yet). A judge ordered the company and union to enter mediation to work this thing out. Guess Twinkies do live forever after all
