I was driving around on January 20 and happened to hear an ad for Wingstop, with Troy Aikman delivering mouth-watering descriptions of boneless and bone-in chicken wings and all those yummy sauce flavors.
I would have forgotten about that ad, but later on, I happened to hear George Bush addressing an adoring crowd. My mother had FOX on in her bedroom and there was Bush in Midland, Texas speechifying on the legacy of his Administration. I picked up one sentence:
…and appointed great judges like Sam Alito!
That was enough of that! But it got me thinking…Inauguration Day, we saw the idiot right wing Republican Party cheering wildly for their loser, while in Washington, D.C., the idiot left wing was freezing their asses off as they went wild for THEIR loser! (Of course, most of the people peons in the streets of D.C. probably don’t even know what their politics really are and were just attending “an event” for the hell of it.)
At that point I thought of those chicken wings popped back into my mind, but with a different name.
Idiot wings. That’s what this country just swung between. You can talk centrism all you want, but right now, we’ve just swung all the way from the idiot right wing to the idiot left wing, at least on the surface. (There’s another “ism” at work, in reality, which starts with an “f” but I was warned by a banker not to use it or else I’d be hauled in by the “authorities.”)
A big portion of the idiot left wing is comprised of “youth,” of course, and according to a site named College Humor,
A picture from CollegeHumor … In Vermont, we like chicken wings and women, especially together.” (nudity)
Now, to see the above picture, you have to register at the site…which I decided to skip!
However, apparently the Hooters Chicken Wings pic is much more “family-friendly.” “Lucas” opined in 2004:
“Hooters Chicken wings really are fresh. Cooked with feathers!”
(That wing looks more dressed than most of the Hooters females that are on display in that joint.)
I never realized that chicken wings bring out the misogyny in people! Go here and see if you can spot the blatantly erotic pose of chicken wings (posted by two different people) and one that shows the shoulder blades of a young woman.
Just goes to show you the power of chicken wings, which seem to bring out the idiocy from all sides!
Makes that Wingstop ad seem much less appealing now that I’ve seen both right and left wings all in one day!
To quote Grail Guardian’s comment: “Face it – they’re all just a bunch of wingnuts!”
A song started playing in my mind….and here’s the part of the lyric that I heard:
By Stealers Wheel
Well I don’t know why I came here tonight,
I got the feeling that something ain’t right,
I’m so scared in case I fall off my chair,
And I’m wondering how I’ll get down the stairs,
Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right, here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you,
Yes I’m stuck in the middle with you,
Stuck in the middle with you.
I’ll be singing it all day!
