Okay, you guys, can I get your thoughts on something?

I'm starting to think that "Hooters" might not really be named after that owl on their sign.

Not to get all vulgar on you, but... I think that name might very well be a PG-13 anatomical reference.

I know, I know... GROSS, right? I'm sorry. I just worry that the place will be out of business within the month if anyone finds out about this.

I am really looking forward to trying that new hotspot, The Richard Johnson Frankfurter House.

I would say that is about on par, and has no derogatory aesthetic reference to the organ in question.

I just hope my grandma and my four year old enjoy it.

Note: I am just teasing. As I said, none of this really matters to me. I am just enjoying the conversation.

Did I hear that Anthony Wiener was an investor in that?
