Not So Finger Lickin' Good

 
Like most Americans I'm gettin' pumped up for Super Bowl Sunday. Not so much for the game, which is basically just background noise for me, but for the amazing food that is a necessity for the big day. And what would the Super Bowl be without some super sloppy wings? I love me some wings and the whole experience of gettin' the sauce all over my hands and face. That's part of the whole appeal.
 
However, two fancy schmancy dudes wanna take the fun outta the simple pleasure of eatin' this famous football food by inventing some contraption called Trongs, which is designed to keep your hands clean while eating messy food like chicken wings, ribs or even sushi. Is nuthin' sacred anymore????
 
Now I dig a practical invention just as much as the next gal. But like I said, its gotta be practical. If ya use these Trong thangs ya won't be able to enjoy redneck leftovers (lickin' your fingers later in the evenin' for those of you who aren't schooled in the art of redneck lingo).

  3. eating a bird's wings is wrong in the first place, sweet sister :) Very wrong.... imagine if a bird ate your leg or arm while watching Bird Flying Competitions :P

    1. I wonder how long a bird could live off a human arm. Guess it would depend on the size, but still, it'd be a decent meal.

    2. indeed it would, there would be nibbling material for many months....

  4. I thought the redneck leftovers were the bits and pieces stuck in your teeth that you pick out with your pocket knife two hours after the game ends.

    1. Hey, we're not fancy schmanzy people. Same as in America, only the upper class twits would commit such a sacrilege.

  6. I don't watch American football (please don't shoot me), but I do love the tradition of tailgating. I went to the grocers yesterday and bought loads of food because the sales were great for Superbowl. You should check out rugby sometime. It's great because the men wear tight shorts. There are no pads so you can see just how hot their bodies really are. Droolfest.

  7. Trongs...crazy, dumbass idea. I agree with you. Some foods are just meant to be eaten with fingers. FINGER FOOD. NOT TRONG FOOD.

  8. See, I just tend to avoid the messy foods when I'll be unable to clean my hands.

  9. hahahaha Deb! Thank you for your fun words to me and the new month of (YAY!) February. Trongs? Sounds like underwear for fat people. hahahahaha. Did I just say that? See, silly gal, you are rubbing off on me.

    My HM is the messiest hot wings eater ever AND I love it. There is a certain MALE in my family, that will remain nameless, that eats his wings with a knife and fork. I guess I should get him some TRONGS! lol

  10. I'm not a fan of sloppy food (mostly because end up wearing even the non-sloppy food) but those things just look like you're begging for a lapfull of BBQ sauce. Hands are easier to wash I think.

  11. LOL! When I looked at that picture my first thought was "Huh, why is that person using fake vampire fangs to eat their chicken wings?"

  12. Sounds like one of those inventions that is completely pointless. Mind you, I've never understood Americans passion for chicken wings.
