To say he was embarassed is a huge understatement.
Then the witress came to take our order and sat next to him, put her arm around his shoulder and went over the menu with him...
His face was so red, it was classic.

OMG I love it...

If you put the waitresses in speedos and swim caps I don't think they would be as alluring.


I went to a hooters a long time ago and got the worst service ever. Although the waitress fawned all over my boyfriend. She wouldn't even make eye contact with me when she finally got around to asking me what I wanted to drink. Needless to say she didn't get a very good tip from us. She's lucky she got the nickel I left.

I don't go to Hooters because I think they're overpriced. I wouldn't object to my kids going, though.

Why is it acceptable to laugh at a 13 year old's embarrassment?

Because he was well, ah, compensated?

My godson went to Hooters with his dad when he was about 10 or so. He called it "The hiney bar".
Cute.

I wouldn't disagree with it so much for clothing reasons, but the objectification of women being a family event. You can see just as much at a topless beach as at a strip club, so is that what is next for them?

I think a topless beach would be, if anything, less about the objectification of women than Hooters, so wouldn't that be better rather than worse, if that's the criterion?

That's because they're not selling food --- they're selling "sexualized" females so they can overcharge you for the crap they serve.
