The Internet Mourns Twinkies

You've probably heard by now that Hostess, the company that manufactures Twinkies, HoHos, and Wonder Bread is going out of business. They filed for bankruptcy in January, and filed a court request for liquidation this week. The loss of Twinkles is a particularly hard blow for junk food junkies, and folks across the internet wasted no time in sharing their grief. Ranker has gathered the best reaction Tweets, image macros, and videos for your sharing pleasure. Link

The fact that America is more worried about the loss of Twinkies than a manned space program is cause for concern.

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