Hooters in China?


Somehow, I didn't think a communist culture and Hooters went together. It turns out they do, though.


This advertisement was displayed prominently in the "China Daily," an English-language newspaper in Beijing. No, I'm not going to be going to Hooters -- I just thought it was an interesting American export.

Note the slogan at the bottom of the ad: "Hooters Makes You Happy."

Sex and Hoohoos are universal. Great piece, thinking about China being given the Olympics really is maddening. At least more people will be talking sooner rather than later about how there are really two very different Chinas in one.
Maybe in the future it will be in Saudi Arabia or Venezuela.

All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. Without freedom of speech, there can be no real freedom.
