Videos: Marijuana Amendment 64 meets the Last Twinkie on Earth

Shocking but true: A number of video makers are linking the passage of Amendment 64 to the impending end of Hostess, manufacturer of the much-lauded Twinkie -- a move that will reportedly result in the closure of a Colorado plant and 160 jobs lost. Below, see three clips that make the connection, including one said to originate from Colorado Springs, but with dialogue that seems like the work of a malfunctioning translation bot.

Example? At one point, a character declares, "Colorado legalized pot-ay, but now there are no more Twinkies for them screaming blind munchies" (!)

Just for fun, we've also added Conan O'Brien's revelations about "Twinkie Trouble." Check them out here.
