But The Wings Are So Good…

Did you ever meet somebody who read Playboy magazine “for the articles?” Sure you have—it’s a pretty standard line that’s used by anyone who wants to maintain a semblance of purity while shirking its substance. Likewise, the standard excuse for going to a Hooters restaurant is “their wings are so good.” It’s interesting that I’ve never found a female who liked Hooters’ wings…

Now men in Atlanta have a new excuse to go to Hooters: Bible study. No, I’m not kidding. A Christian group called Single Focus Atlanta now has regular Bible study meeting at Hooters:

Voices hush around the patio table as Rick Lamborn poses his first discussion question during a Christian youth group meeting at a popular restaurant.

The topic this night is consistent relationships, and Lamborn begins by asking the college-age group, “How does inconsistency negatively affect your relationships with others?”

As responses sprinkle in, a blonde in a tight white tank top and orange hot pants quietly scoots up to the table. She joins the discussion for a few minutes then has to scurry back to her boisterous customers inside.

From the photo in the article, it’s hard to tell just which passage of Scripture Rick Lamborn’s eyes are focused on—perhaps Song of Solomon 4:5:

Your two breasts are like two fawns,
twins of a gazelle,
that graze among the lilies.

That’s gotta be it. It’s hard to believe that this is real, and not satire. The whole concept is so patently absurd that I’m at loss for words to comment on it. Sometimes it’s best to let absurdity speak for itself, so read the whole thing.
