Does she close her eyes when she takes a shower?
Pedantic alert: spelling is: “gimmick”. I am neither a grammar nazi nor gestapo, merely a member of the Spelling Task Force.
And apart from the fact that they dropped clams from their menu, the food and sports and camaraderie is still pretty good at most locations in general. .Seriously, for years, the one in Kissimmee had the “World’s Oldest Hooters Girl” – my exBF and I would stop by to visit and for near 55, this woman had one helluva shape above and below the neck. And she was the best and coolest bartender ANYWHERE on this or any other planet. Sad to say, one of our hurricanes (Charlie, Frances, or Jeanne) messed up the location and it never reopened. ExBF and I always wondered what happened to ‘Grandma’.
Oo Oo. Pick me coach. I ain’t afraid of no boob.
That’s why I only get the thighs and drumsticks! ;)
Look up “hooters toy yoda”. That was not one of the company’s finer moments.
Good afternoon Jane fans. So the therapist has a phobia also. Interesting. Be happy and healthy my friends.
I have to agree.Hooters Food always gave me Indigestion..The one I Really Wanted to visit was the Hooters in Chinatown, Washington DC. But, the day we set out to visit, we got sidetracked when we spotted a Really Great Dim Sum restaurant about halfway between the parking lot and the Hooters.We never did get to find out if they had Chinese Hooter’s girls or not…
Comics ballons reflect how the characters speak, not how they write. To correct the spelling in a cartoon may very well be pedantic.
I can’t believe it. I have been reading Jane’s World long enough that I have actually seen this story before. Maybe it will be better this time around than what I remember…
Forgive me. I am on several different comment boards with a wide range of readership (some fun, some so serious they could eat a bran muffin and produce a tweed suit in an hour).
I edit paperwork where people pay me to be strict. Places like this, I do not get paid, and have been subject to curses and vitriol, not so much from the cartoonist/author but the audience when the particular slip is in the writing.
Rarely do I correct a commenter’s posting – I figure that the standard to/too/two, your/you’re, its/it’s or a slight misspelling can be a spellcheck error, unless the word is completely out of left field.
I for one dislike the two terms I invoked, hence the Grammar Task Force as an alternative. I merely used them as a pre-emptive strike and shield from the incoming poison arrows I’ve received on other sites.
This site feels a bit friendlier. The authors actually read the commentaries here? I am glad for a place I can let down my guard, well, just a little.
If you are going to hand around Jane’s World, you are going to have to get used to seeing misspelled words. Point out the errors all you want. (Others have done this in the past.) Nothing will change.
Also—if “gimmic” doesn’t spell “gimmick,” what does it spell?
