World Wide Web Wacky Wing Wednesday. #lotwWWWWWW.
Exploring chicken wing culture on the internet every Wednesday.
I do not play Pokemon. I have not watched the show. I have not played the card game. I have not played the video games. But there is no denying the phenomenon that has been Pokemon Go. It has only been out for like 2 weeks, but a day does not go by where I watch people stumble in the streets, run in packs, or sit at lunch and get some Pokemon. I watched a 40 year old man hold up a line at Costco as he tried to capture one on the conveyor at the check-out.
That being said, there is at least one thing that links chicken wings and Pokemon; the slogan. "Gotta Catch'em all!" - that's how I feel about chicken wings. But surely there's more of connection?

"I know this isn't art related, but I thought it was hilarious. I went out to get wings earlier today and one of them looked like charmander so I took a picture of it."
I think it's awesome.
Pokemon champions also like to eat wings:

There are also a bunch of homemade Pokemon chicken wing cards:
My Pokemon Card | A site dedicated to helping you create your own Pokemon Card. Look I even created my own:
Ha ha ha - I have no idea what any of that means, I just clicked on numbers.
So are you a Pokemonist? A Trainer? Are you engulfed with Pokemon Go AND eating wings?
