1.3 Billion Chicken Wings Spent on Presidential Election

Yep. Experts project 1.3 billion chicken wings will flap into the election economy in a flurry of advertising for the flock of presidential candidates. Wait a minute…hold the phones! Experts project 1.3 billion chicken wings will be consumed on Sunday for Super Bowl 50. Sorry for the confusion — call it a bad case of PCHS: “Post-Caucus Hangover Syndrome.” Here’s what’s cooking at week’s end: chicken pot pie and shrimp on fried grits! Hope to see you at the table!

What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End

Thursday, February 4

Chicken pot pie. Made with specially cooked chicken breast meat, a host of roasted root vegetables, and a scrumptious sauce made with our own chicken stock, S.H.E. chicken pot pie redefines mom’s old standby meal. Believe it or don’t, but the Republican Party published a circular during the 1928 election affirming that if Herbert Hoover were elected President of the United States, there would be “a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage.” Sadly enough, several months into Hoover’s first year a little thing called the Great Depression started. Hoover wore that chicken around his neck until Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected in 1932. Well, we can promise a chicken pot pie on your plate, and nobody has to get elected — just drop by the table.

Friday, February 5

Shrimptastic Friday: Special made shrimp served on fried grits. Shrimp lovingly cooked with chopped veggies in a delicious sauce served over baked garlic cheese grits will make you toot your horns up and down the street. Well, old Franklin Delano Roosevelt loved scrambled eggs, fish chowder, and any food “you could just dig into.” A gift to the family in 1940, Fala was a black Scottish terrier who became FDR’s constant companion. Fala, who’s full name is “Murray, the Outlaw of Fala Hill,” is responsible for brokering the secret deal to have Prime Minister William Churchill come to the White House for Christmas 1941. In fact, most experts agree Fala was the power behind the FDR’s override of the Joint Army and Navy boards’ refusal to help Great Britain in the summer of 1940. Well, we feel sure Fala and FDR would approve the shrimp and grits because you really can just dig into them, and they will help you develop great public policy. Yep.

For the full skinny on chicken wing consumption, please take a gander at the National Chicken Council’s (“Yes, Virginia, there is a Chicken Council”) projections and interesting facts: “Americans to Eat 1.3 Billion Chicken Wings for Super Bowl 50.” Facts like this: “Weighing in at about 162.5 million pounds, 1.3 billion wings weigh 6,325 times more than the combined weights of the Panthers and Broncos entire 52-man rosters.” That’s a super-fat yardbird.

Famous Quotes

Well, good ol’ Harry S. Truman quipped one time, “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.” Yep. He totally wished he had a special advisor to the president like Murray, the Outlaw of Fala Hill.
