Buffaloes can’t fly!

so, when did they earn their wings?

spicy mystery


Author's note: I had a good Idea about the origin but had to look it up after writing this. There are at least two people who claimed they were the first to concoct the delicious treat. Both are from Buffalo NY.

Are there any other foods/dishes you can think of that doesn't sound inviting but is surprisingly great? Share in the comments.

Thank you for stopping by!

    Spotted Dick-sponge pudding made with suet and dried fruit-served with custard. The Brits swear by it. Sorry, i never tried it. Sounds fun though. If pigs fly, why not everyone else.

  • I’ve often wandered the same thing!! Great job Lamar!

  • Spotted Dick! I often wondered about this, this is great :-D xx

    Ha! thanks for the history lesson on one of my favorite foods! 🩵

  • You telling me a shrimp fried this rice 🤨

  • Rocky Mountain Oysters--delightfully edible for all but the bull.

  • I've never had buffalo wings before but as a kid, I so wanted to see the species of buffalo that had wings 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Imagine my shock when I discovered that there's a place called Buffalo, lol. Then I put two and two together. Loved your Senryu!

    Well, I've seen a horse fly... Personally, I never eat anything that flies or has wings but I enjoyed chewing over this one. Nicely done Lamar!

    lol! Such a good one, Lamar! As a kid I was always disappointed at how disproportionate the Buffalo’s wings were to the rest of his body. Was expecting a much larger platter. 😂 Loved this little senryu! I’ll be thinking on that final question.🔥🪽 🦬 🪽 🔥
