Nationalize the Twinkie, President Obama

That’s the goal of a new petition that’s found its way to the White House:

We the undersigned, hereby request Barack Obama to immediately Nationalize the Twinkie industry and prevent our nation from losing her sweet creamy center.

The request is tagged with both “Civil Rights and Liberties” and “Human Rights.” So far, 3,417 citizens have signed on.

Meanwhile, Hostess is spending today in bankruptcy court, trying to figure out to do with all these 100-calorie donut packs that clearly no one wants.
