    Doc Shakalu will probably put in a bid for some fruitcakes.
    Taking up to 10 $10 bets LeBron does not return to Cleveland on his next contract. If you think he is, bet me $10.

    Proceeds will go to a charity or cause that we agree upon.

    Bettors:
    DougHeil, shoes22, warddj86, jonzee330, bushwick_bill, gourimoko

    Hostess has been planning this shut down for years, and it's been well known in the business community. It has nothing to do with unions and everything to do with profit.

    All up for sale lol. A whole tray of fruit cakes, one tray of cupcakes, 20 boxes of twibkies, 15 bags of donuts
    That sounds like a Tuesday in some neighborhoods of San Francisco...

    one big thing to also mention is that Little Debbie doesnt have a labor union up their ass, and can operate their business to their liking.

    My father in law was talking today that there are bakers up in the Toledo plant still picketing.

    I don't understand how unions work but instead of closing the entire company couldn't hostess just hire like scabs?

    fudge rounds are Little Debbie. Ho hos I'm sad to say are gone. The current supply will go bad in 2150.
