Oh buffalo Chicken wings, we have no clue why are named so but given your short mayfly lives from skillet to stomach it would seem almost rude to diver attention from salivating over you to pondering your name’s origins. If you are curious though there seems to be no certain reason for the name, though most claims revolve around them being invented in a location named Buffalo (usually Buffalo, New York which is name after a creek which no one knows for sure why the creek was named Buffalo.)
So perhaps perusing the topic of name-origin loses its glamour when there is no answers, or when it infringes on the ability to eat chicken wings. Talking about American Buffalos however, (no not the 5.7 star movie.) the majestic creature of the Midwest plains whose visage graces the $50 coin, well that’s always rad no matter what’s on the table.
Buffalos were hunted to near extinction before conservation laws helped bring them back from the brink; today Buffalo herds can be seen roaming once again in parks and preserves. Buffalo are also raised as livestock. Apparently Buffalo is similar but better than, in both taste and health impacts, to beef. Today Buffalo are being hunted once more in different states, in attempt to mitigate land use conflicts, or to simply manage population and disease. While buffalo are no longer endangered the move to allow them to be hunted is still often controversial.
