This Time, It’s Personal, Obama. Hooters Going Under?

February 10, 2010

Oh, the humanity.

NY post

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.

    That pic is fake. None of the local hooters locations have women that hot serving me!

    And for the record, I think the reason sales are sagging is bc there food sucks. Some days its easier just to go to a strip club.

    Having never eaten in a Hooters (yes, I am a straight male), I really won’t miss it. However if a eatery that offers such mammary service is bankrupt, this really bodes poorly for the large numbers of smaller eat sites.

    The sales seem to be the only thing that is sagging.
