Quote of the Day

"It's a guy's world. You can't get it at home; you can't get it at your workplace anymore. But you can get it at Twin Peaks."—Front Burner Restaurants CEO Randy DeWitt, whose Twin Peaks restaurant chain is fixing to give Hooters' a run for its money ($997 million in sales last year alone) with its "imaginary story" about "a guy and a girl in a mountain hunting lodge," menu of manly food like "burgers, steaks, and wings," décor featuring "river rocks and mounted trophy animals," and waitresses dressed in "flannel shirts tied at the waist and shorts."

Isn't it good to know there are still heroes willing to provide havens on this Maude-forsaken earth where men are allowed to treat women as sex objects with impunity, the way God Mother Nature The PatriarchyTM intended?

[H/T to Shaker Constant Comment, who asks, "Is it really 2009?" I believe so—at least in some parts of the country.]
