Hooters: Moms Get Free Chicken Wings On Mother's Day! Worst Promotion Of All-Time?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Nothing quite says Mother`s Day like a plate of chicken wings, and Sunday they are free for moms at any U.S. Hooter`s restaurant, restaurant officials say.

Mike McNeil, vice president of marketing for Hooters of America, LLC., says Hooters is showing appreciation to all mothers for all they do to make the world a better place, by serving up their signature chicken wings for free all day on Mother`s Day."



Tired of giving your mother or wife flowers and taking her out to the Sizzler for Mother`s Day? Do something different this year and take her out to Hooters.

Yeah, right! I can imagine a dude trying to convince his wife and mother of his children to celebrate Mother`s Day at Hooters:

Clueless Dude: Honey, I want to show you how much you mean to the kids and I by doing something really unique and special for you this Mother`s Day.

Wife: OMG! You`re going to buy me those diamond earrings I showed you online the other day?

Dude: No darling, I thought we -

Wife: We`re going to that fancy new French restaurant that just opened?

Dude: No, my love muffin, Hooters is having this incredible promotion! Moms get a free plate of chicken wings on Mother`s Day! Isn`t that a terrific deal, sugar lips?

Wife: Don`t you sugar lips me you worthless piece of crap! Do you really think I will settle for a bunch of chicken wings, you idiot? I`ll settle for nothing less than fillet mignon! Hooters, right! Like I`m going to let you ogle big boobed bimbos on a day that`s supposed to be for me?

Quick Thinking Dude: Snookums, I was just kidding! I`m taking you to the gourmet French restaurant, and you can order those diamond earrings.

Wife: (She knows her guy is full of crap, but she`s giddy with joy over getting the earrings.) Oh, honey, I love you so much.
