The Cod is pro-breasts* and pro restaurants, but not so much pro-when the one is the raison d' etre for the other. So, when I clicked over to the story about how Hooters was suing breastaurant parvenu Twin Peaks for theft of trade secrets, I expected that the gist would be that Hooters wanted exclusive control over the idea of women with large breasts serving food -- possibly worthy a lazy, layup post -- but in fact, it seems the defendant "Hummel downloaded and emailed to his private account a “substantial volume” of Hooters documents, including plans related to management, recruitment, distribution and sales." So, it's basically a regular lawsuit, which happens to involve two restaurants that employ scantily clad female servers. Newsworthy? Well, since the Huffpo <3 T&A, sure, because you can illustrate the article with pictures of these servers, and their breasts, scantily clad.
It gets a lot creepier. Between the third and fourth grafs, this text appears:
HuffPost readers: Have you worked at a Hooters before? If so, we'd like to hear about your experiences. Email email@example.com
Call the Cod a prude, but that seems to be veering from lefty website territory into one hand-on-the-keyboard-the-other-in-the-Noxema territory.
