“Golf Pros and Tennis Hoes”

On my way to work every morning I pass the The Captain Cook Tavern- famous/infamous in Dunedin, and general champion of poor taste. My opinion of The Cook is not a positive one, and I generally have no expectations of it. And yet somehow I still managed to be disappointed  by this promo poster in their window

 

 

What can I say, really? I like the way the “o” in “hoes” is a sexy lady mouth with a golf ball in it.

 

I guess “golf pros and tennis hoes” is much catchier than “dress up in an argyle vest or a tennis skirt for some cheaps KGBs. So who can fault them, right? Just tryin’ to be catchy.

My first impression was utter disgust over the “tennis hoes” part, and yet now the more I think about it I also can’t stop thinking “please, PLEASE don’t let anyone show up in blackface. PLEASE”. So much fail, really.

      Pretty much. I was really fucking pleased that Mr LadyNews (who was with meat the time) was as horrified as I was. I don’t expect much from The Cook, but I still hope for them to be better than this.
