Bill Gates and Warren Buffett pose with “beautiful Hooters girls”

Is this for real? Bill Gates and Warren Buffett posing with a bunch of busty women in tight white tank tops at Hooters? Hooters Restaurant posted this photo on its Web site with a news release proclaiming the world’s two richest men can now eat for free at any of the chain’s 435 restaurants. Like they really need free food.

Apparently the pair dined at a Kansas City, Kan., Hooters Oct. 20 along with members of Berkshire Hathaway’s board of directors. Sorry, I’m just learning about it now thanks to Melissa Allison. Guess I just don’t visit the Hooters Web site nearly often enough.

“The visit came at the request of Buffett so the group could pose for a Christmas Card photo with the chain’s beautiful Hooters girls,” the news release gushed.

You have to wonder who received that card. A great inspiration for all those girls around the world the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is trying to inspire through science and education, perhaps? Nice move. Money < brains
