Happy belated Thanksgiving, everyone. If you're suffering from a brutal food hangover like I am, then your Thanksgiving was assuredly a success.
I never quite understood why banks insisted on being open the day after Thanksgiving. This should ve a universal holiday, as far as I'm concerned. Besides, even if you're in the office today, you're going to be mailing it in. And you won't be alone in doing so.
So, I figured I'd deliver a small dose of Bonus Bananas to help those of you who have to work get through the day. For those not stuck in an office, you can enjoy them as well.
Without further ado, here are the links...

15,000 lose jobs as Hostess liquidates (Chicago Tribune) - Though Hostess may be down, we can rest easy knowing that someone will scoop up its iconic brands. Now, I know everyone is freaking out over a potential shortage of Twinkies, but I'm personally worried about a dip in the supply of Drake's Cakes. Devil Dogs are my all time favorite snack cake, so much so that when I was a kid, I assumed that its where Marines got their nickname.
That's it for today, folks. Hope you all had a fantastic holiday.
