Tuesday, June 08, 2021

The U.S has the largest broiler chicken industry in the world. However, due to the pandemic like so many other industries the chicken wing industry is taking a hit and that could impact consumers wallets.

Let me guess:

The supply has been cut in half since Florida began throwing out all the left wings.

Silly nonsense.

There is no "nation wide" wing shortage.

I just enjoyed some Duff's chicken wings last Thursday....the corners of my mouth are still tingling from the hot sauce.

Suck it Florida.

Fake boneless "wings" abound. All the taste is in the batter/crust and hot sauce.

Them ribs are made from tripe. Which is actually delicious.

Phester finding tripe delicious is delicious. Tripe is slang for nonsense.

Tripe is the beef stomach. The stuff you snowflakes go eeeeeww over.

#12 - actually tripe is the lining of a ruminant's stomach, not the stomach itself, nor is it exclusively from beef stomach.

#14 - actually tripe is tasty. Have you ever eaten it, or are you one of those who pooh poohs something without trying it because it is different? Some people think cow flesh is disgusting, too, yet you eat it. If you have never had tripe, go to a good Mexican restaurant and order menudo. You might be surprised.

#16 - I do not understand your equivocation of being punched in the face by Mike Tyson with eating tripe.. Two different things with completely different magnitudes of undesirability. So I take it you would rather be punched in the face by Mike Tyson than eat the very popular Mexican dish menudo? How odd.

Eberly was right about you.

I was. I troll weak ass arguments like "you have to try everything to know if you like it."

Simplistic slogans like that completely ignore the human intellectual capacity to draw accurate conclusions from data other than direct experience.

We're having a retirement party for the old owner tomorrow and my boss loves to grill/smoke so we will be having some, from what I've been told, good chicken wings. Being a vegetarian I can't speak from experience but I also can't be shamed into eating nasty stuff like tripe, haggis, Balut or whatever.

#33 - likewise I won't be shamed because I do eat it as speaksoftly is doing to some of us. I have not seen many people as nasty and vicious as speaksoftly. I mean, to denigrate someone because their choice of foods is different than his? Really? And this person is supposed to be a liberal?

As I mused earlier, I think speaksoftly is a Republican plant to make Democrats look bad.

When I was in Scotland a couple years ago I thought haggis was rather good. Of course I doubt it's like the good ol' days.

#36 - I think haggis is good. It reminds me of scrapple.

You cannot get authentic haggis in the US because the FDA does not recognize lungs being suitable for human consumption

Best hangover food there is

I think tripe is delicious! Whether it be menudo, ginger scallion or one of its other forms. Chicharon bulaklak (fried pork intestine) is also awesome.

I've had multiple people tell me that chicken wings are disgusting. I think they are incorrect but nothing to get one's panties in a bunch over.

People like different foods. The cruelty/immorality of factory-farming and murdering innocent animals aside, it's pretty ignorant to attack someone over what they like to eat, especially in a country where pureed "random stuff I found on the floor" (hotdogs) is a staple.

$38 - I have heard that but I have never eaten it with a hangover. I do love its taste, though. Garnished with fresh chopped onion, cilantro, and lime it is an awesome dish.

I was not born into a rich family. Nonetheless, we never considered "chicken wings" to be part of any known food group. Just eat the batter, there are no bones to choke on.

Why do people like wings so much? There's hardly any meat on them. Just like ribs. Not enough meat on them either. People perplex me.

I was not crying. I was just making an observation.

" I didn't denigrate your food. "

That is funny. Allow me to repeat from one of your posts:

#45 - I think the wing infatuation is from the taste of the sauce that surrounds it. You are right in that there is very little flavor being white meat.

Ribs are a different story. With red meat, the meat that is closer to the bone generally has a better flavor and the high bone:meat ratio makes it easier to enjoy that flavor.

Lots of pungent vegetables, the lime, the protein, the salt, the broth. All put a lot of vital nutrients, liquid, and electrolytes back in the body. I think that's why it works so well as an antidote after a night poisoning yourself with tequila and Pacifico. Or so I've heard...

As for the wings, I agree with Laura, I've always thought they were a lot of work with little reward. Both cooking and eating. I agree on the ribs, properly done you should be able to suck them right off the bone. Never mind how that sounded...

Tell us more about how "real" liberals behave. Does it involve being a polite ----- and rolling over and getting outsmarted and outstrategized by republicans?
