I try very hard to find the “silver lining” in every cloud, if for no other reason than psychological self-defense.
In thinking about the whole Hostess/Twinkies versus unions situation, it took me a long time to find the tiniest sliver of silver lining, but after much meditation (done while I was completely sober, I’ll have you know) I found it!
Once Twinkies are off the market, we will never, ever worry about some idiot lawyer trying to foist off a “Twinkie Defense” on another jury.
OK, it’s not much of a silver lining. But it was the best I could come up with to help those of you worrying about going into Twinkie withdrawal.
