Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

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.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
