In wake of Hooters ban on Filner, Tilted Kilt extends invitation to embattled Mayor

"Past mistakes? We don't give a hoot!"

"The Mayor said he's committed to changing," said The Tilted Kilt Brand Manager Minnie Scertt in a press release. "He apologized. He took a leave of absence and received counseling. He has promised to do better in the future, and he has taken steps to ensure that he will do just that. Frankly, I think that's all we can ask of a man. And yet, some vindictive segments of the food-and-cleavage industry have decided to play judge, jury, and executioner and ban the man outright. Well, we here at The Tilted Kilt like to think we're just a little bit more enlightened and fun-loving than the Puritanical party poopers over at Hooters."

"With that in mind," continued Scertt, "we'd like to extend an open invitation to the Mayor to eat and drink in any one of our San Diego area locations. What's more, we'd like to give him a chance to prove himself. If he can make it through 90 minutes without groping any of our extremely attractive waitresses, then we'll pick up the tab. And we just might bend over the table to do it."

Dear Tilted Kilt, Maybe this is a joke. If it is, then I'm assuming you don't have a PR department. So let me help you out... you really shouldn't joke around about sexual harassment and/or assault. Just something I picked up in elementary school.

Maybe this isn't a joke. Maybe you think you're taking the high road, by offering the mayor a second chance. Either way, the fact that you would not only tolerate but go so far as to actually invite this man, who has admitted to sexually harassing women, to interact with your employees, is just incredibly poor judgement. On top of that you actually offer him a free meal for not groping your employees. So I guess groping is fine as long the customers pay?!?

I mean really guys, do you have a PR department?

Mencken's column is satire. Note at the top that it says: Almost Factual News

Rats. I wish it were true. Now that would be funny.

Don't understand why these middle aged women waited to report the incidents.
