Here is a happy story. Once upon a time, there lived a restaurant owner in Morgantown, West Virginia, by the name of Daniel McCawley.* A customer wrote an Urbanspoon review (which has since been deleted) asking the waitstaff at Atomic Grill, McCawley’s eatery, to “show more skin.”
“It was brutish. I was upset. I'm a father of a 12-year-old girl and I've got five sisters,” McCawley told ABC News. “The way that women are treated is pretty personal as far as I'm concerned.”
So he posted a delectable image of stuffed potato skins to his restaurant’s Facebook page and announced a new special: the tuber peel appetizers for only $7 until Memorial Day, with the profits going to the West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information Services.
Daniel McCawley, you are no mere spec-tater to everyday sexism, but an awesome, funny ally against it. You, sir, are a total spud. Stud. We look forward to your chicken breast special in the near future.
