In my face.

I've never seen a man, steal so many chicken wings.

DAMNIT!

Ah, well. Did they steal a truckload of watermelons while they were at it?

Wasn't there just a story about a chicken wing shortage?
 
2013-01-28 10:50:07 AM  
Only 26,000?

You leave it in the refrigerator trailer you just stole and run a heavy-duty extension cord from a plug-in (preferably stupid Flanders' plug-in, not your own) to the trailer to keep the refrigeration unit going.

I'm not a chicken wing rustler. It's just common sense. Because if you don't have a refrigerated warehouse, you're going to have to have a buyer for those wings lined up before you steal them.

One five-pound bag of frozen Tyson's chicken wings sells for about $12.50. If you do the math, that's about 26,000 pounds of wings.

Five pounds times $12.50 equals 26,000 pounds.

Now what am I going to do with seven 55 gallon drums of blue cheese and the four cubic yards of celery sticks?

This is why we can't have nice wings

This


Yes there was. I don't know whether these guys are contributing to a chicken wing shortage or responding to one. My guess is that as Super-Bowl approaches, there is always a chicken wing shortage or, if there is an over-supply of chicken wings, the people who sell the chicken wings are only too happy to create one.

If I am right, this story is seasonal fark, like Christmas tree fires and stories about getting fat.

In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the PR departments of major chicken packers produce press releases emphasizing the shortage of chicken wings just before Super Bowl in order to make sure they are not left with tons of chicken wings on their hands when Super Bowl is over.

Again, I would like to point out that I am not a chicken wing monger. It is just common sense to suspect the primary beneficiary of a chicken wing shortage as a suspect for creating the chicken wing shortage.

And they would have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for us meddling kids.

I was told there would be no math.

Wings have gotten too popular and therefore too expensive. I'm going to have to move on the something else for snacks. I'm thinking maybe livers/gizzards or even the feet. Russians go crazy for the feet. Not sure how they cook them, though.

I thought the same thing but really not that surprised when I clicked the link. When certain groups of people continue to perpetuate a stereo type it makes my job that much easier.

probably this. it makes for good, cheap marketing. just 'leak' some shortage scares. works for every other product.

Psssssst! There is going to be a Bud Light shortage, on or about The Superbowl. Don't tell anyone, so we can get ours cheap before the public finds out about this, and the price skyrockets.

No, it's not the same at all. Piss actually tastes like something.

26,000lbs of chicken wings


Or 3,000 pounds of actual chicken.

So these idiots (as well as the commenter in the article and several contributors in this thread) believed the urban legend not news about a wing shortage and thought they had a gold mine.

This is where poor information will lead you.

/ok, poor information and poor choices but you get the idea

Fark party at these guys' house, stat!

Wings have become the most expensive portion of the chicken.
Damn things used to be cheap.

Dear dude quoted in the article,

It's not a well-planned heist if you get caught.

Sincerely,

Not a moron

Talk about feeding the stereotype... wonder if they drive an Escalade with stick on vent holes?

They're called "wings" people...not Buffalo wings, and not chicken wings. Please!
From Buffalo, so I oughta know!

I was thinking the same thing, but I saw it was from Atlanta prior to scrolling down and seeing the picture and already knew that answer. This is too easy. The brotha was just trying to feed his family. Deserves a "Ballsy" tag.

Well the species of bird it came from is chicken so therefore there is nothing wrong with calling them chicken wings. If they were labeled as "wings" then it could be from any bird and not specifically chicken and don't think they wouldn't put duck wings and other wings if they could.

I went short on wings for March delivery so my kicks are deferred.

This overlooks the fact that chicken wings suck to eat - gross!

Odd thing, subby. When I hear that, I don't immediately think of 26,000 lbs of chicken wings...

They were probably selling them to small independent wing restaurants located in rundown shopping centers all over Atlanta.

/Some of them have really good wings others not so much.

Can't be the same guys. These guys got caught, but hijacking a Colt 45 truck works every time.
