I’m a little concerned about Fala in the circumstances.
I’m a little concerned about where FDR’s hands will go if Fala jumps off his lap.
Eleanor’s worst fears, confirmed. “Warm SPRINGS, huh?”
Eleanor would never have gone for the Appalachian trail bit.
Other possible Presidents for Hooters’ ads:
1. H. Hoover
2. T. Roosevelt
3. Woodrow Wilson
4. C. Coolidge
Tippecanoe and Tyler tOO!
Not, alas, Franklin Pierce.
Nixon – tanned, rested, and ready for some wings!
I would think it would also appeal to the two Johnsons.
It’s meant to appeal to johnsons…
None of those are streets in Guatemala City. But I bet they’re streets somewhere.
JFK or GTFO.
Glad to see that even in Guatemala Hooters is handicap-accessible.
Whatever they do, don’t let him mix the drinks!
In the original picture, his left hand isn’t visible. It’s OK for him to leer, but they had to photoshop in a hand to avoid the implication of what it might be doing back there.
Both hands seem to be photoshopped–the four fingers are a clue.
It may be a tourist trap sports bar, but it’s our tourist trap sports bar.
The context is, of course, that one of the main streets in Guatemala City (one that generally runs through upper-middle-class commercial and industrial zones, the kind where a Hooters would be found, and heads toward the tourist town of Antigua) is “Roosevelt” street, pronounced like the last part of “kangaROO’S bell”. I had a student once named “Rusbel”, named after that street.
The only thing we have to fear is …cameltoe.
