A new White House petition wants President Obama to nationalize the "Twinkie industry," saving the popular junk food from possible extinction.
"We the undersigned, hereby request Barack Obama to immediately Nationalize the Twinkie industry and prevent our nation from losing her sweet creamy center," a petition on the White House "We the People" website requests.
Hostess Brands Inc. — maker of the Twinkie, the Ding Dong and Wonder Bread — is preparing to shutter operations amid a labor strike and rising costs. Unionized workers rejected a major pay and benefit cut, sparking the latest strike.

"What’s happening with Hostess Brands is a microcosm of what’s wrong with America, as Bain-style Wall Street vultures make themselves rich by making America poor. Crony capitalism and consistently poor management drove Hostess into the ground, but its workers are paying the price," AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka said in a Friday statement.
A full shutdown of the company could result in as many as 18,000 job losses – though it's possible a buyer could be found for some of its dozens of brands.
The White House petition was posted Friday. It needs 25,000 signatures to generate an official White House response.

What Happens To Amusement Park Rides Once They Are Put Into Storage Or Destroyed? They are magically transported to a place only know as "Amusement Park Between", a park that co-exist within any other and is only accessible by those who are of its blood. There are no limits and no humans. The only residents are the RIDES. However, they are much different from our own. Amusement Park Between's rides are ALIVE, having both the characteristics of man and beast. Amusement Park Between was once merry and joyous, but for the past several years it has spiraled into turmoil. An evil tyrant known as Ironwheel has taken control, casting a dark shadow over Amusement Park Between, and whose evil intensions endanger both their world and our own. The rides only hope is the key to their prophecy, "The Red Will Defeat The Black". That perticular key is the only ride that was created differently. The red roller coaster, Railrunner. And This Is His Story.
I couldn't make this up if I tried. Oh and I'm quoting the site as to why it's so bad:
This is the story of a scarlet-red talking rollercoaster named Railrunner. Along with his ragtag bunch of talking amusement park ride friends, he goes on grand adventures throughout the mystical land of Amusement Park Between, a land of talking rides where clichés rule and everything is an informed attribute. Everything. Railrunner’s one goal in life (or the closest thing to a goal as one so passive as himself could have) is to slaughter everything that gets in his way and crown himself supreme ruler of everyone and everything in Amusement Park Between.
Oh, did I mention he’s supposed to be a good guy? And that he’s a Black Hole Sue?
The truth has finally been revealed, the continent of Antarctica is a psychopath! Just look at all that Bionicle Legends.....wait it isn't blood? It's a plume of seawater tainted with high amounts of iron oxide? Also the glacier is said to have trapped microbes that are essentially primordial ooze, they've evolved without light, free oxygen, and heat. False alarm.
