Hooters Offends Some More People with its Wholesome Family Fun

According to the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Department of Animal Services is takin’ some heat these days after agreeing to allow funds from a bikini contest sponsored by the delicious restaurant Hooters to be donated to its “Big Fix” Spay and Neuter Program. Apparently, nobody cleared the creation of a naughty flier for the event, which Hooters is calling “Hooters for Neuters”, and the Los Angeles City Council is hootin’ mad. They feel that the event is degrading to women and shouldn’t be associated with a city funded department. I would tend to disagree. I think that if this event degrades anyone, it is the innocent dogs and cats of LA County. In effect, it tells these poor homeless creatures, “We don’t care enough about you, or your reproductive organs, or your welfare to just donate some cash. If you want us to show you the Benjamins so you can stop havin’ babies that get into our trash, and carry rabies, and run around all unloved and uncared for, you had better pony up some bikini clad ladies and some tasty wings.” That’s what I call cruelty to animals.

Either way, the Department of Animal Services has announced on their website that they will not accept funds from the Hooters event. This is sad because I’m sure they, and the animals they serve, could use the money. In a rather odd twist, the main complaint about the event and its degradation of women came from LA City Controller Laura Chick. Insert joke about how a woman who calls herself Chick can complain about Hooters degrading women HERE.

Yay! I'm first!

Anyway, I find most Bush Administration policies to be degrading to women (or the entire human race) and I didn't give back my tax refund. What does that say about me?

I can't say that I'm down with the whole Hooters concept (in particular the airline) but it does seem like a good cause. Does Bob Barker own that Hooters or something?

I would be more than happy to accept a donation from Hooters to neuter my husband.

Hooters wings are garbage, and the fact that guys use that as an excuse is like saying they buy "Playboy" for the articles. Why not just be a man about it and say that you like looking at young ladies in short shorts?
