Er…I mean Hooters.  I wonder if Missoulian reporter Lori Grannis had a hard time keeping a straight face while writing her article about Missoula’s newest restaurant.  The careful efforts of the owner, Steve Edgar, to distinguish his property from all the other American chain restaurants serving mediocre food without mentioning Hooters’ obvious attractions are unintentionally hilarious.  Some choice quotes:

Hooters, he said, was just too intriguing a prospect to give up on.

Edgar said Hooters and the casino will be “a haven for sports fans,” with more than 38 large-screen plasma televisions planned.

Staff training for Hooters is intense, according to Edgar. “Hooters employees spend eight weeks training in another Hooters location, learning every station in the restaurant,” he said. After a series of tests, each work with the restaurant’s general manager, then head off to Atlanta for a week at Hooters University, he said.

Hooters U? What’s its nickname, Home of the Bouncing Implants? I didn’t realize people needed to be schooled in selling sex.  Whatever. I hope all those breast men “sports fans” in the area “intrigued” at the idea of ordering chicken wings with a side of celery sticks and blue cheese are happy.  I’m pretty sure there’s something else they serve that’s different from all the other chains on Reserve, but for the life of me and Mr. Edgar we can’t think what that might be.
