NPR Snobs Laugh At Shutdown Of Hostess

On Friday, Scott Whitlock reported ABC’s Good Morning America reported the morning show milked the 18,000 jobs lost in the shutdown of Hostess for laughs. The same laughing at pink slips occurred Saturday on National Public Radio’s game show Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me. Players were given a question after NPR newscaster Karl Kasell asked in a low growl “Where are you, you spongy yellow delicious bastards?”

Host Peter Sagal explained Kasell was delivering a Woody Harrelson line about Twinkies from the movie Zombieland. After a contestant answered that it was Hostess that shut down this week, Sagal started the wise cracks. “Hostess Incorporated, they make Twinkies, Ding-Dongs, Wonder Bread, Fudge Puppies, Fat Crammers, and Lard Bursts [laughter]…said they would liquidate the company if striking workers didn’t come back to work.”
