"It drives me insane, it's not how you eat a chicken wing."

If I'm eating chicken wings wrong, I don't want to be right. It seems to me this guy has a prissy aversion to getting bones anywhere near his mouth. It's cute that you know how to debone the thing with your fingies but some of us enjoy bone-gnawing.

Also, I like the very end part of the wing, well cooked and crispy, and I'm happy to eat the whole thing, bone included.

I'm scared now

wv: exifi verb (trans) (1) Early 21st century internet slang for "to crucify".

The hardest part is making the chicken hold still.

More than you'll ever know!

Yum! Crispy, crunchy chicken wings that you can just pop in your mouth and eat the whole cracklin' thing!

Bissage, have you ever imagined a flock of chickens running on the ice? Your post gave me that pleasure for the first time.

I didn't detect any prissiness in that video. The narrator's all for eating the crunchy cartilage and sucking off any bits of meat still clinging to the extracted bones.

It's an interesting technique. I'm going to try it next time I have wings. Thanks!

That may be how they eat chicken wings in Blefescu, but it just won't hold here in Liliput.

Chicken wings,
Nasty things,
Taken naked, that is;
Dressed, of course,
Grilled and sauced,
Sybaritic status.

How about some grilled bat wings on a stick? Link.

I like the "boneless" wings better. Which leads to a musing: How exactly does one breed a chicken with boneless wings? Is the chicken traumatized by its inability to properly fly? Or is the whole chicken boneless, and just sits around like some small pillow, squaking and jiggling like a white, feathered mound of jello?

Which brings us to buffalo: Are "boneless" buffalo wings also from boneless buffalo? Could you imagine: A whole lot of couch-sized beanbag chairs that are self warming. Those'd make the best winter seaon furniture pieces ever!

These are deep thoughts for a Saturday college football afternoon. :D

Prissiness and metafilter = hand in glove.

What a jerk off (as in prissily jerking the chicken off the bone). The proper way to eat a chicken wing is to suck the meat off the bones. The bones acutally work at a handle. Cartilege and all. Yumm.

Mincy guys mincily bite chicken wings.

At my step-brother's wedding reception 20 years ago, I bit into a chicken wing cleverly disguised as a non-descript fried chicken part. One of the most traumatic experiences of my life.

I like my brother's technique: Insert flat into mouth. Bite down on far end. Pull bones out of mouth.

Hey, that bastard double-dipped!
