OWENSBORO, KY – Buffalo wings are loved by many Americans, but one Kentucky town isn’t wild about them being named after a town in Upstate New York. Owensboro, Kentucky resident Hector Fowlmouth said, “I don’t know much, but what I do know is that the “K” in KFC stands for Kentucky and I stand for Kentucky. Buffalo has got to go.”
Owensboro’s main drag, Frederica Street, was once the Buffalo Trail which served as a major food source for hunters who hoped to escape the certain death of dysentery.
Another local said, “we understand buffalo here in Western Kentucky and their tiny wings should be represented by a town that honors them.”
The debate over the wings has become so tense that one group has called for a boycott of the Frederica Street KFC. When asked whether or not they would boycott Buffalo Wild Wings a group member commented, “Look, I need somewhere to drink my beer and watch the Louisville – Kentucky game without my old lady nagging me.”
