I blame this kind of shit on the low-carb diet craze of today and the obsession with "obesity" in the news. I actually know people who drink Michelob ULTRA LIGHT BEER in an effort to be more "healthy," and even Kryspy Kreme is feeling the pinch. Now, a got-dam American institution is being torpedoed by people who believe that they can eat their way to weight-loss, if they simply stuff their gullets with the "right" foods and stay away from the "bad" stuff.
I weep. Twinkies are vanishing from the American food menu.
It was the third plant closing and regional consolidation the company has announced over the last two months, costing a total of about 3,000 jobs. The company also plans to close plants in Miami and Charlotte, N.C., and consolidate operations in Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia.
And I'll bet that they won't have a single shrunken fat-ass to show for it in the long run. I've seen people lose a lot of weight on the Atkins Diet. But they always turn around and gain it right back again because they simply like to EAT TOO MUCH!!!
Nothing chaps my ass worse than to have some Jabba-the Hut looking fucker complain about second-hand cigarette smoke in a restaurant while that person is eating enough food to feed a family of five. THAT'S a really health-conscious person, wearing those size 56 waist pants.
I'm willing to make a deal with those people--- you stop bitching about me smoking, and I won't call you a fat-ass. That sounds fair enough to suit me.
And leave my goddam Twinkies alone.
