Buffalo Bill

October 30, 2006

This rather uninspired rendering is from this week in 2006. It introduces a week of food- and diet-related discussion if you care to follow the link. Some of it approaches clever. I know I’ve told you this before. Few remember, but Kentucky Fried Chicken was the first to market chicken wings to the general public as a snack food. This would have been sometime in the ’80s, I think, and there was quite a blitz of related television advertising. I was with my father one day when one of the spots aired during a game we were watching. “I was in the army five years,” said my father, “and I never got anything in the chow line but a wing! I don’t see what’s so damn wonderful about a chicken wing!” Happy Birthday, Daddy! He would have been 105 on Halloween.
