Hooters Booms: The Women of Hooters Step Forward To Clean Up Gulf Oil Spill

With a series of failures in the Gulf in dealing with the BP spill and complaints over the lack of action from the government, help has finally arrived by one of the most trusted groups in America: the Hooter girls. Hooters has announced that its employees will be donated their torn pantyhose to help absorb the oil — that is over 100,000 pairs pantyhose.

Just to save you the math: 100,000 pantyhose will supposedly be enough to absorb one million gallons of oil. The pantyhose will be used for Hooters booms.

There are roughly 15,000 “Hooters Girls” in the US — though they are now technically oil abatement specialists.

Hopefully, this is not the basis for Obama’s sudden decision to speak to the nation on Tuesday about the spill. The people at NOAA might not take too well to the President surrounded by Hooters girls and pledging progress with his new team of oil specialists.

  1. I could not believe it when I read this. Are they serious? If pantyhose will solve the oil crisis in the Gulf, why don’t we just make one big giant pair and suck up all the oil at once?

  2. “The pantyhose will be used for Hooters booms”

    This is a clearly a job for either Hooter’s *Booms or Busts*

    Getting serious now, I have spent time in Louisiana and I love the Cajun fiddle and Zydeco music. This video illustrates a small part of a culture of music and people that might be seriously damaged by the oil from the Deepwater Horizon; just because a multibillion-dollar company got greedy and cut corners to save a few millions of dollars.

  3. FF LEO,

    I agree with what you have said. Funny as it may be, the work load because of the heat/humidity means that they only work 20 minutes an hour or about 2.5 hours per 8 hour shift.

  4. And here I thought them gals would be on the frontline of the beaches fighting the oil gusher in their bikinis. Now that would raise a lot of direct help with the oil cleanup from thousands of fellers out work from their fishin’ jobs and such.

  5. Hooters girls might be on to something. I read they are made to wear heavy industrial strength pantyhose.

  6. AY

    The gals working their way through college probably can.

    My family members tell me they can wear two one-legged hose, so until a rip occurs in even them, they’re good to go. Of course that’s here in Ohio.

  7. I don’t know how it is in other towns but here, in my town, there are never any cars at the BP station, which used to be a very busy place.

  8. Not that I want to get slapped down, but they can only do one thing at a time. They are generally Not the brightest bulbs in the box. One question, or maybe two. Did the 100,000 pair of pantyhose come from one person or are they counting both legs?
