Y'know... (in Off-topic)

Buffalo wings are small dude (when speaking in this sense, I even call chicks "dude". Just ask Sundari :P)...

I mean, they are tiny...

Meanwhile, buffalo are massive.

Furthermore, I have never seen a buffalo with wings (granted, I've not seen too many buffalo)...

This would suggest that the wings are clipped off at birth or a very young age, which would explain their size...

But why?

Wouldn't allowing the wings to get larger increase the net profit from the meat of the buffalo's wings per buffalo?

Are they so afraid of these powerful beasts already that they would never risk allowing them flight?

Would clipping their wings to make flight impossible ruin the meat?

Imagine the size of a wing on even a small buffalo...

Imagine going into a restaurant, with your family, and needing only to order *one* buffalo wing...

And it would satisfy everyone...

I say we stop allowing buffalo's wings to be clipped so early!

Who's with me?!?!


I got bored again >.<

lol. i am with you. i actually thought the food's nickname is their "wings". Didn't know they really had wings. A flying buffalo? hmmm.

The argument in standard form: (y'know, I just finished my critical thinking paper) - I got bored as well.

Conclusion: We should ban clipping buffalo's wings on young buffalos.

P1: Buffalo wings are small.
P2: Buffalo is big.
P3: Hatch has never seen a wing on an adult buffalo.
Therefore, probably:
C1: There is no wings on adult buffalo. (from P3.)
Therefore, probably:
C2: Buffalo wings are cut off early. (from P1, P2 and C1.)
P4: Cutting buffalo wings when they are bigger increases profit.
[P5: Anything that is good for business is good for society.]
Therefore, probably:
C3: Cutting buffalo wings later is good for society. (from P4 and P5.)
P6: By cutting buffalo wings off only adult buffalo, families only need to order one buffalo wing to feed the family.
[P7: Ordering less buffalo wings is good for society.]
Therefore, probably:
C4: Cutting buffalo wings later is good for society. (from P6 and P7.)
[P8: If buffalo wings are being cut off early and allowing them to grow is good for society as a whole, it should be banned.]
C: Cutting buffalo wings off young buffalo should be banned. (from C2, C4 and P8.)

I don't know if this argument passes the material test, but it should pass the logical tests. :P I am so bored.

You guys are making yourselves out to be pretty dim.

Buffalo wings refers to location on the globe after which they are named: Wings, Spain. Where there are pygmy buffalo, and the LEGS are chopped off to make Buffalo Wings. They aren't the wings of a buffalo (duh), they are the legs of a Wings Buffalo... like, Eggs Benedict, or Chicken Parmesan... Buffalo Wings.

*shakes head at the ignorance*

I really hope you're joking, Paddy Boy...

Hazzard June 17 2008 3:02 AM EDT

They dont allow buffalo to fly because.....well have you ever seen what happens to a statue when a flock of pigeons roost on it? :P

As someone who actually comes from Buffalo, NY, the birthplace of the "Buffalo Wing", I can dispel these common misconceptions.

No animals are harmed in the creation of these delicacies, as they are named after the town, not the large, hairy beasts.

They come from the seed pods of a plant that can only grow under deep snow, fed by genuine Lake Erie water; the Fullocrappus buffawingus plant. Before they are harvested, the leaves of the plant resemble angel wings, thus the nickname.

So you see, they're actually a vegetable, so they're healthy and vegan friendly... you only think you've been eating deep-fried chicken...

i came up with my own boneless version of buffalo wings. it was brilliant! take the concept of chicken mcnuggets and meld that with buffalo wings. it didn't fly very well though, perhaps it was the name...

Paddy your last 3 posts have just been insulting.

N0seBLeeD June 17 2008 9:46 AM EDT

Paddy, heard of a joke?

And Imagine full sized Buffalo flying all over, crapping. A crap that size could kill someone.

Draugluin June 17 2008 10:19 AM EDT

Arrrgh Nosebleed, they certainly do *not* come from Wings,Spain.

iBananco [Blue Army] June 17 2008 11:31 AM EDT

Seems you guys can't tell when he's joking either.

BootyGod June 17 2008 1:42 PM EDT


Paddy is joking too.

Come on, did you seriously think he was being for realliez?

8DEOTWP June 17 2008 1:53 PM EDT

he's just trying to make you all hungry

Paddy Boy June 19 2008 4:31 AM EDT

hehe, I was joking about folks being dim, but...damn... Maybe they just don't read too well. Or maybe there is a town named 'Wings' in Spain that I don't know about.

j'bob June 19 2008 7:34 AM EDT

or maybe, Paddy, you're just light years ahead of the curve here!
you made me giggle till my side hurt!

Timberwolf June 19 2008 8:19 AM EDT

Hazzard, that reminds me of a short little poem from around my 2nd grade days:

Birdy birdy in the sky,
Why'd you doo doo in my eye,
I'm no baby I don't cry,
I'm just glad that cows don't fly.

Perhaps this was something they taught kids many moons ago to help them deal with the fact they were clipping the wings off of young Buffalo?

This song makes more sense now:

Just smile for me and let the day begin
You are the sunshine that lights my heat within
I'm sure that you're an angel in disguise
Come take my hand and together we will rise

On the wings of love
Up and above the clouds
The only way to fly
Is on the wings of love
On the wings of love
Only the two of us
Together flying high
Flying high
Upon the wings of love

You look at me and I begin to melt
Just like the snow when a ray of sun is felt
I'm crazy bout ya baby can't you see
I'd be delighted if you could come with me
