This Time, It’s Personal, Obama. Hooters Going Under?
Oh, the humanity.
From the NY Post (as you can tell by the term “breast-aurant” and the “rattling cans” line, heh. Oh, that Post!)
Hooters is rattling its cans on Wall Street.
The Atlanta-based “breast-aurant” chain — famous for the scantily clad waitresses who serve up its burgers and spicy wings — is beckoning prospective buyers, sources told The Post.
Hooters has recently shopped itself to a number of private-equity firms as sales have sagged with the recession, sources said. The closely held company, meanwhile, is in advanced talks with a Connecticut-based investor that has been granted certain rights of refusal on any potential transaction, according to one source.
Our houses are being foreclosed left and right, no jobs in sight, but this, THIS, is uncalled for. Where will we get our, um, wings? (that’s totally the only reason you go there, right?) Save Hooters from sagging! Buy more wings!
UPDATE: Ed Driscoll links and points out someone who won’t take the news well at all.
