You know what can be a hard thing to sing about? Chicken wings.
There are a lot of chicken wing songs out there, but they are not that great. But the group Abdominal and the Obliques sent me a link to their video " A Brief History of the Chicken Wing" and, well I think it's excellent. And informative!
The video is great as well!
Yes, World Wide Web Wacky Wing Wednesday. WWWWWW. This is where I will surf the Web, and find other people talking about chicken wings. The world is full of chicken wing stories, wacky and otherwise. Recipes, restaurant reviews, eating contests or whatever. Today's Blog relating to wings in some shape or form:
Browsing the internet I came across Ninja Wings. A story on Esquire Malaysian. It's a fictional piece you can find HERE.
From the story:
"A month ago, while channel surfing, Candice had caught a celebrity chef on TV who was demonstrating how to prepare spicy chicken wings. Her desperation compelled her to take note of the ingredients: chicken wings with wasabi powder, miso paste, soy sauce, salt and pepper. The combination of flavours gave the dish its name, “Ninja Wings”, and it became one of three dishes in Candice’s culinary repertoire. The other two were eggs, fried or charred.
For the next three weeks, Candice woke up at six in the morning, oven-roasted the marinated wings and packed them in a Styrofoam box for Joseph to take to his clinic on Jalan Ipoh. Because he never complained about having the same dish for lunch everyday, Candice assumed he liked Ninja Wings."
I realize this is a work of fiction, but I had many issues with it; oh Esquire. But I do know that while the wings sounded interesting, sending cold chicken wings is not the way to go when trying to save a marriage. They need to be fresh. That's what will save it.
What did you think of the story? The wings?
