30 Entirely Rational, Unemotional Reactions On Tumblr To The Hostess Bankruptcy [Twinkies Forever]

Posted Nov 18, 2012 by Jeff Houck

The magnificent ways in which my fellow United States of Americans react to seismic shifts in the cultural landscape never fail to make me proud.

Exxxspecially when they do so in the face of something so inconsequential that a bug hitting a windshield makes more of an impact.

This phenomenon was in full bloom this week with the announcement that Hostess was declaring bankruptcy.

The resulting death of Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Sno Balls and Donettes struck all of us hard, but no one more than the level-headed folks who make Tumblr their home for all human emotions.

Here now is a small sampling of their soul-stirring outpouring of love for the newly departed snackstuffs:
