Did you hear about the Teacher who took kids to Hooters?

Rick from sent me this link to yet another Hooters & Kids scandal:

PHOENIX (AP) — An Arizona music teacher whose students performed at a presidential inauguration event is on administrative leave after taking 40 high school students to a Hooters restaurant.

Paradise Valley school district spokeswoman Judi Willis says choir director Mary Segall accompanied the students to a performance in downtown Phoenix last week, and during the outing, they ate lunch at Hooters.

Willis says Segall explained that the restaurant, known for its waitresses’ somewhat revealing attire, was the only place that could accommodate a group of that size. But district officials believe there were other options for lunch in the area.

Segall could not be reached for comment.
The teacher plans on retiring in January, and Willis says she does not know if she’ll return before then.
Information from: The Arizona Republic,
High School students taken to Hooters for lunch, because it was the only thing that could accommodate the group, after a presidential inaguaration event. Awesome. I also love that the teacher, Mary, is retiring in January (sounds like she said, sure, let's go to Hooters, I'm done soon!).
Hope the wings were good.

I hope Hooters hires the teacher as a spokesperson or at least for a commercial. They tend to play up such controversies instead of hide from them.

Once a community was not going to give them a beer permit to sell beer so they announced that they were going to GIVE away beer with meals. The community gave in.

Damn. Carolina plays basketball in two hours and now I want wings for some reason.
