Five reasons why Hooters casino is going tits up

When I walked into Hooters Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, all I could say was "wow." It seemed like mankind's greatest invention: Titular entertainment at a "breasteraunt" supplemented by table games.

But somehow, Hooters fell flat.

The casino is now in a Silicon valley-sized hole, in debt to the tune of $162 million and filing for bankruptcy protection earlier this month. How did this happen?

The five best reasons we can see:

1) The corporate structure is top heavy.

2) Hooters is hot shit in the Midwest, just shitty in Vegas.

3) An A in math is awesome, for a Hooters bra size, not so much.

4) Bunch of boobs in management.

5) Vegas just didn't give a hoot.
