People who don't know how to eat flats think drummies are better. If you're not breaking them in half you're doing it wrong. A FORK THO!?!?!

Easily the best wings I have ever had were the Vietnamese fish sauce wings at Pok Pok in Portland, Oregon. They didn't make you choose, and just gave yout the full wing; drumette, flat and flapper. And I guarantee you will suck every single edible molecule off of them. They're that good.
My brother would agree with you.

I'm often prone to hyperbole, but it's hard to overstate how amazing those wings are.

The highest possible compliment I can give them is that @Angie loves them too, in spite of the fact that in all of the time I've known her, I've never seen her eat something with anything remotely close to the word "fish" in the name... except for these wings.

This is true. We basically took a return trip to Portland primarily to get Pok Pok.

We went out to Portland, and before returning to the airport to fly home, we stopped there. It was a return trip for him so he made sure he was going to end our vacation right.

This hit home. I can still hear it.

I voted flat too. Just trying to imagine using a fork to pull the bones apart and coming up empty. How do you get the meat in the middle?
Start on one side at the top, pull the meat down with the fork, cut off the bone and enjoy. Do the same on the other side. Then whatever's left in the middle either fork out or use hands.

Do you have dentures or no teeth? By the time it took you to eat one, I'd probably have 3-4 gone already. I assume you drink you tea with you pinkie out also? Man card revoked. Sorry the tribe has spoken.

I didn't vote. For me the correct answer is "Legs". Grilled, smoked or fried at home using various spices and sauces. Twice the meat compared to wings for less than half the price and they taste better.

I voted flats, but I actually prefer boneless. I know I'll catch all sort of flack for that comment, but the buffalo style breaded chicken nuggets are easier and cleaner to eat.

I am absolutely shocked that flats have a lead. I have always just assumed drumsticks are preferred. Whenever I make wings for a group you can count on any leftovers being all flats.

I can get through a wing with a fork just as quickly you, no doubt. If you measure your manhood by how much buffalo sauce you have smeared all over your face, take my card, please.

So do you have dentures or no teeth, hence the fork option? I just don't get the dainty fork option when eating wings. You can eat wings with your fingers and still not get it on your face. I guess some of us are more talented than others. If I see anyone eating wings with a fork I will go up and ask them if they are Gonzo.

Not a fan of wings or legs really. Too much work for not much meat. If I'm cooking chicken I'd prefer hindquarters.
This is correct. The thigh is the best part of a chicken. Super versatile.

Haha. No dentures, have all my teeth. I just like avoiding mess on my hands and face, using a fork is easy and clean.
