(Via Amit Agarwal). I usually don’t mention Bill Gates’ personal (as opposed to Microsoft) activities, but I can’t resist World’s Two Richest Men Can Eat for Free at Hooters:
While they surely don’t need the help, the world’s two richest men can now eat for free at Hooters restaurants. On Friday October 20, 2006 Bill Gates and Warren Buffet were presented with Hooters VIP Cards at a Hooters Restaurant in Kansas City, Kansas. The Cards entitle the gentlemen, who currently rank numbers 1 and 2 on the list of worlds richest, to free food at any of the chains 435 locations in 46 states and 20 countries exclusive of tip and alcohol.
The pair made a stop at the Hooters Restaurant along with members of the Board of Directors for Berkshire Hathaway. The visit came at the request of Buffet so the group could pose for a Christmas Card photo with the chain’s beautiful Hooters girls.
Indeed. The Christmas Card photo is available at either of the links. I guess it’s another instance of the old aphorism, “If you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime. If you give a man a Hooters VIP Card, he will eat for a lifetime served by young women in skimpy outfits.”
