Hooters Ain't Racy

According to the Georgia House.

Rep. Tommy Smith, R-Nicholls, had a pressing concern about the portion of the bill regarding adult entertainment billboards.

"You're not messing with Hooters are you?" Smith asked.

Rep. Dan Lakly, R-Peachtree City, said he opposed the bill as anti-business and anti-property rights. He said claims that the measure would harm the environment were overblown.

"People don't like billboards. Well you know what? Get over it," Lakly said.

Apparently, city boys don't just live in Atlanta. Anybody want to buy his neighbor's property and put up a really racy billboard on it? Howabout with lights and sounds and smells? Something to do with hairy beavers?
