I don't believe in the five second rule. I'd never eat anything off the floor.

Hostess may be closing its doors for good. The maker of Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Suzie Qs and other nutrient-free but yummy pastry thingies may call it quits. If so, what will you do?

Be pleased. That stuff is terrible and the sooner they go, the better

Indifferent. I didn't eat their stuff, so it won't make a lick of difference now that I can never again eat their stuff

I'll be sad. Twinkies are a staple of American junk food

Racing to the stores to hoard Hostess Cupcakes or other products. They last for a long time, right?

Edit: For the first question, anything you don't check it's assumed that if the pizza fell on that surface, you'd throw it away instead of eating it
