Hooters Is Giving Out Free Wings to Single People on Valentine’s Day

Most Valentine’s Days spent single are passed in a concentrated effort to forget your ex but, on this year’s Valentine’s Day, Hooters is asking for your remembrance of what was.

On February 14th, during the yearly reminder of our societal obligation to companionship, Hooters is offering up the chance to get 10 free boneless wings. The only condition is you must bring in a picture of your former significant other to be shredded, because people still shred pictures like it’s a mid-2000’s lowbrow romcom, evidently.

But, if you’re living in 2020 like the rest of us, and your photo library is on your phone or computer, you can digitally shred your ex as well. You’ll be presented with a voucher you can use to redeem your chicken nuggets — er, boneless wings, excuse me.

Unfortunately, a rather difficult dilemma faces you after your former flame has been extinguished and 10 boneless wings are in your possession: Do you squad up with all the other people who decided to go to Hooters on Valentine’s Day or do you go home and eat your Hooters wings alone while solemnly curled up on the couch? Both are equally as existential crisis triggering but, hey, at least you’ll have ten free wings, right?

Right?

KFC Warns You Not To Choke On Its New Original Recipe Boneless Chicken, Kinda

bonelesschicken

In an effort to ease the pain of the poultry-scarfing masses, KFC is introducing a new deep fried, original recipe boneless chicken so people no longer have to worry about choking on those pesky boney bits while eating on the go.

The idea, KFC said according to the Associated Press, is that young people don’t like bones because they grew up eating nuggets (curse you McDonald’s). It also said that if the trend towards more convenient, on-the-go eating options continues, bone-in chicken pieces could eventually disappear off the menu altogether.

Now, in case you were wondering what makes these guys any different from regular old chicken strips, rest assured knowing they are at least larger than normal strips and come in both white meat and dark meat, but not without losing the glory that is deep fried chicken skin, AKA the best part of chicken EVAR. Which makes the thought of this being the only chicken option available in the future all the more tragic.

When I was little, I would always peel the skins off my chicken, eat the boring meat inside first and then savor the deliciously crunchy fat strips, letting the juices swirl around on my tongue. And to think, if this thing takes off, my future children or grandchildren might not be able to do just that – I shudder at the thought.

The new offering also comes with this strange slogan: “I ate the bones!”—the meaning having something to do with the meat tasting so awesome and people being so famished that they inhale the chicken before fearing they might have swallowed bones. Though if the world does get lazy enough to prefer breaded boneless to skinned bone-in, “chicken-choking” will be the least of our worries.

New KFC Original Recipe Boneless Chicken will be available at select KFC locations starting April 14, either in a two-piece combo for $4.99 or in a 10-piece mixed bucket with four boneless and six bone-in pieces for $14.99
