Give Them Their Bonus or the Terrorists Win

If this isn’t post-millennial America in a nutshell I don’t know what is…

NEW YORK (AP) — Hostess Brands Inc. plans to ask for a judge’s approval Thursday to give its top executives bonuses totaling up to $1.8 million as part of its wind-down plans.

The maker of Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Ho Hos says the incentive pay is needed to retain the 19 managers during the liquidation process, which could take about a year. Two of those executives would be eligible for additional rewards depending on how efficiently they carry out the liquidation.

Like rehiring the surgeon who dropped a pair of scissors in your belly during a procedure to go back in and fish them out.

Bravo Hostess Execs, you win  today’s Chutzpah Award.
