When she was ten, she told everyone in her class that her ambition was to become a nun. 8 years later, she's a stripper holding hot sauce.

oh, okay...I don't like wings, but I like boobs. That's what's great about Hooters.

I've never actually been. Because I don't like wings. Or the smell of pent-up desire.

I read that as Josh Groban has a Hooters credit card to which I respond, "That's how he keeps the pipes clean."

But really, Hooters seems like a job like any other, except with better tips and greasier hands.

Who the hell is Josh Groban? I've been wondering this for weeks now. He's in the AOL broadband commercial, alongside lots of people you've heard of. He seems an awful lot like AOL made him up.

I don't "get" Hooters (New thread:"Why don't British people "get" Hooters?"). What do you do, keep ordering sides so you get so to see a little jiggling? I hear the food is good, actually.

There was a terrible Hooters knock-off in London called Honkers. I never went, but all the women on the posters were horse-faced and mannish. It didn't stay open long.

They're very clean cut - little orange shorts, little white t-shirts, nasty tights. Totally and utterly unstimulating, honestly.

I got dragged to Hooters not once but twice last year for "business lunches"--the IMAX Corporation is perhaps not as sophisticated as some. The food was _awful_--even the fries were foul. Also the girls were ugly in that fresh-out-of-rural-Louisiana way, with the eyes a little too far apart (or too close together) and the reek of stale GPC Menthols tainting our "food." That my coworkers and the IMAX guys spent the whole time making lewd comments about both the waitresses and the female bodybuilding competition that was on the TV at the time didn't help.

Thus I rate My Time at Hooters as an Unpleasant Experience.

I'm just still amazed that she got a job at Hooters. She'll get the best tips cos she'll be the only non-horseface there. But still, the girl wanted to be a nun most of her life! Now she's in school to be an elementary school teacher! It's OUTRAGEOUS! My dad blames me.

Ally (mlescaut), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 12:32 (11 years ago) Permalink

i've never been to hooters - i take it the waitresses all have big tits and don't wear bras? it sounds gross yet interesting.

i'm going to open a rival chain for women called Nads, where there will be hot male waiters in extremely short yet loose shorts.

I have been to Hooters a lot, one of my friends (who happens to be gay) is in love with Hooters. It's bizarre, it's always me, him, and some random Israeli dude, all of his roommates are Israelis. And the waitresses. I have a shirt from Hooters, I'm pretty jealous of my sister, because I kept threatening to go work at Hooters but SHE ACTUALLY DID IT.

Ally (mlescaut), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 13:46 (11 years ago) Permalink

at one of the places I used to work at in Chicago, we'd order Hooters for dinner all the time. I've eaten the food, but never been in one. Unfortunately, not long after I started this job I went veggie.

hstencil, Wednesday, 30 April 2003 13:48 (11 years ago) Permalink

I have been to the original Hooters in Clearwater, business lunch. The girls were ok if you like stripperly types. I could gawk at women at Clearwater beach without having to pay for crap food if I wanted to do that.

Hooters has had many sexual harrassment lawsuits against it. I guess that is pretty much expected.

OK, my dad clarified his misplaced blame: he believes this is the result of me giving my sister shiny leather pants.

Kenan Hebert (kenan), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 14:00 (11 years ago) Permalink

Y'know...

I just have to ask: What in Holy Fuck is the deal with this vapid tone among Young College Intellectuals that seems to deride any playful expressions of the "straight male mindset" as being completely deplorable and "neanderthal"? And why do I get the feeling that those same YCI's would have "fuck-all" to say about, say, a known gay entertainer publicly drooling over which straight male celebs he'd love to see half-naked and greased up (something I've come across on a few occasions, in some of the movie/entertainment rags), for example???

I mean, not trying to start a fight here (although I doubt that'll fend off some of ILX's more Righteous types), but I'm just openly wondering...

Ally (mlescaut), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 14:09 (11 years ago) Permalink

Skittles, I don't really sense that tone here. First of all a few people here seem very enthusastic about Hooters. The rest (including myself) seem to feel that Hooters=just-not-titaliting-and-rather hilarous instead of "deplorable and "neanderthal".

That Girl (thatgirl), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 14:11 (11 years ago) Permalink

Skittles, you are bang on but to be fair that tone is more prevalent at ILM and Ally has never given me the impression that she's of this opinion (I mean, she's just started a thread on Hooters).

Calum, Wednesday, 30 April 2003 14:14 (11 years ago) Permalink

The real urgent and key question is who is the entertainer, and who does he want to see greased up? I'm betting it's Nathan Lane discussing Matthew Broderick.
