Farewell Mr. Brooks

All bras hang at half-strap this week at Hooters as chairman Robert Brooks, 69, was found dead in his home on Sunday. The Myrtle Beach Sun News reports that an autopsy is planned for today. The man told Fortune magazine in 2003, "Good food, cold beer and pretty girls never go out of style."

















I can't say the food is Emeril's or Wolfgang's but maybe I'll make a pilgrimage this week and pay my respects at the Hooters hotel with a beer and some wings. I mean, if it weren't for Hooters, Carrot Top's funnies joke (other than going through the Wendy's drive-thru with pigtails and hearing someone scream, "Oh no! It's the boss!") would be lost to all. (The joke: The Hooters application... which is similar to the one shown in the pixelated photo below.)

Just the other day I read a hysterical post on Hooter's...if I find it I'll send you the link.

Can't say I'm a big fan of Hooter's but I guess if I got desperate for a job they'd probably hire me if that there is the only test they give.

I will NEVER get that desperate!

You know I still haven't made it over to the casino yet, but they really do have great wings...

What a great shot of the "application." Formerly in the HR field, I can appreciate the depth of that testing process.

Nnnnice application. Guess you can't just rely on the "cup size" answer on the old paper app these days huh? LOL

I wonder if they have a similar test for Chip N' Dales and Thunder from down under?

Criticize the guy if you want ... but he had one hell of a business plan! Kudos to him.

And his restaurant provides a great standby punchline for many a comedy writer.
