No One Laughing At the Hooter Jokes in Brooklyn Anymore

One of the longest-running jokes on Brooklyn blogs is the old "a Hooters is opening in our neighborhood" gag. Everyone has a good laugh, wipes their eyes and moves on.

Now the Brooklyn Eagle and NY Daily News report that neighbors of the soon-to-open Barclays Center are trying to fend off an actual Hooters from opening in their neighborhood, but no one's laughing. (Not even at the category name "breastaurant.")

“I don’t know whether it’s a cultural clash or a clash in values, but it’s not the kind of establishment people would expect to find in Brownstone Brooklyn,” said CB6's Craig Hammerman.

Best lines of the story in the News: "A group called Save Park Slope declared war on Twitter Monday. 'We will fight Hooters on all fronts,' the group tweeted."

A big, sad breasterant story at the Eagle.
