Photo of the Day: Restaurant’s awesome response to customer’s demand that servers “show more skin”

potato skin special

Recently, a customer at the Atomic Grill in Morgantown, West Virginia complained on UrbanSpoon that the restaurant’s servers should “show more skin.” Because, obviously, as everyone knows, when you go out to eat, you are paying not just for the meal but also the chance to ogle the women whose job it is to serve it to you. 

The restaurant’s owner Daniel McCawley was pissed. He explained, “The way that women are treated is pretty personal as far as I’m concerned.” In response, he posted a photo of potato skins on the restaurant’s Facebook page and offered a special on them. All the profits from the skins will go to the West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information Services.

Well played.
