Chicken Wing




I'm going to have to eat crow tonight, among other things.


My man-friend and I went out for wings last night, and he was telling me that the little drumstick-looking things were part of the chicken wing. I said not so, that it was the leg. He even asked the waitress, and she agreed with me and we poked fun at him together. I was thinking that I had met yet another "winner", a clueless idiot. I even went so far as to tell him that if he was right, I would do anything he wanted.

Count me in on being one of the clueless ones. WendyDoh.gif


I always thought that those drumstick-looking parts

were part of the wing. After all, a whole wing consists

of three sections, doesn't it? You have the drumstick

part, the part with the two bones in it, and the outermost

part that just has a bit of skin on it. Wendyshrug.gif


Not only that but, an actual leg has that needle-like

bone attached to it that gets in the way sometimes.


Some people call them wing-dings. I refer to the part

that you're talking about here as being "the ding of the wing". GONZ9729CustomImage1539775.gif

The drumstick-looking thing IS part of the wing. You are not a clueless idiot, I am. But now that I know better, I can walk tall in the knowledge that the ding of the wing is known in chicken circles as the "drumette".

I must have misunderstood your post then. Wendyshrug.gif




That's good though. At least now I know that I was right

when arguing with other people that it isn't a leg. GONZ9729CustomImage1539775.gif
