I’m pretty sure this is a sign of the apocalypse. Alternate title: better re-stock that Twinkie supply, while there’s still time!

This is bad:

Hostess Brands permanently closed three bakeries Monday, including a plant in St. Louis where 365 jobs were cut, in response to a bakers’ union strike that started Friday.

The bankrupt maker of Twinkies and Wonder bread said it’s trying to avert liquidating the entire company, and it shuttered three plants that were no longer able to produce and deliver products because of picket lines. The other plant closures are in Seattle and Cincinnati, where a combined 262 jobs were cut.

“We deeply regret this decision, but we have repeatedly explained that we will close facilities that are no longer able to produce and deliver products because of a work stoppage — and that we will close the entire company if widespread strikes cripple our business,” Hostess CEO Gregory Rayburn said in a statement.

He’s just bluffing, right? He wouldn’t actually shut down all of Hostess, would he?

Would he?

    At the helm of this isn’t Trumka, but Michelle. This is just part of the War On Twinkies. Next thing you know, Hershey PA is going to be a ghost town.
