Gary Bettman: everyone’s hostess with the mostest.
OK, 90′s jokes mercifully aside, let’s get on with further stupidity:
First the NHL lockout, now Twinkies??— Josh Peck (@PortableShua) November 19, 2012
This gem was RT’d 628 freakin’ times (as of the writing of this post). Something tells me fans really care deeply about this
NHL lockout Twinkie thing right now.
Of course, in a move that can only be described as a labor negotiation punch-in-the-face-line, NHL fans got this news:
The judge overseeing Hostess Brands Inc., while declining to approve the company’s liquidation, asked management and the bakers’ union to enter mediation today to resolve the strike that the maker of Twinkies and Wonder bread said forced it to shut.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Drain said yesterday at a hearing in White Plains, New York, that there are “serious questions as to the logic behind the decision to strike.” Hostess and the bakers’ union agreed to Drain’s request to enter confidential mediation under his supervision.
Well Bettman, it seems the free market values Twinkies more than your lockout right now. Mission: ACCOMPLISHED! By the time this thing is over, Bettman’s going to be that sad girl on stage covered in buckets of hemoglobin. THEY ARE ALL GOING TO LAUGH AT YOU, GARY. THEY ARE ALL GOING TO LAUGH AT YOU.
So… NHL lockout, Twinkies, bad movie analogies…
Did somebody say “first world problems?”
Play us the hell outta’ here, Meshuggah!
