The Heart Attack Grill - a theme restaurant whose specialties include the Quadruple Bypass Burger and Flatliner Fries, cooked in pure lard - is making health-care professionals' blood pressure rise, and not because of the menu.

Ooh, can we do female geared ones? I'm a girl, and I've always had a thing for teachers.

But you know, you always see schoolgirl kilts and knee socks and pigtails. You don't see very many sex symbols dressed in sweater vests with leather patches on tweed jackets, carrying around papers to grade. Hmmm. Interesting.

I've always wanted to open a Hooter's like place for women, but instead of calling it the Cheesecake Factory, I'd call it the Beefcake Factory with hunky, scantily and tightly clad men waiting on the female customers and serving them pinot noir and cheesecake.

And I could use a second job. I'm assuming that by "hunky" you mean "short and scrawny", right?

Well, I enjoy reading about linguistics, but I'm by no means a full-fledged linguist. And, let's face it, "a cunning guy who likes reading about linguitics" doesn't make a very good pun. Besides, short, scrawny, and cunning? A small guy like me can only handle so many adjectives! [Wink]

As usual, I was going to agree with you, Ryda, but then I read the restaurant owners' own defence:

quote:
[Heart Attack Grill owner Jon] Basso shrugs off Summers' complaints, and refers to her and her supporters as prudes, cranks and lunatics.

"If anything, I think it glorifies nurses to be thought of as a physically attractive and desirable individual," Basso said. "There's a Faye Dunaway, Florence Nightingale hipness to it. Nobody wants to think of themselves as some old battle ax who changes bedpans for a living."

Take that, Wong! Where's your feminist critique now? Left in the dust, that's where! You've met your match. Even the waitresses agree:

quote:
Courtney Chapman, a 20-year-old waitress at the grill, said she found nothing wrong with the uniform or the stares she gets.

"They definitely look at us, but they're guys," she said. "If our butts are coming out the bottom of our skirts, and our boobs are coming out the top of our shirts, we're kind of asking for it."

Ah, yes, Richard. You are, as usual, correct. What a cogent and nuanced analysis by Mr. Basso and Ms. Chapman!

Where's that d*mned fish! [fish] [fish] [fish]
