Adult Advisory - Chicken Porn

You may need to avert your eyes for a minute or two. So much nakedness.

What? No Eau de Yardbird?

Lately bacon has been getting uber-attention. You can find it layered on just about any sandwich, as a toothpaste and ice cream flavoring, and now - as a cologne. That's right, you can entice the pups in your life with BACON!

If you are looking to put a bit of sizzle in your life, this might (not) be the thing. There's some story about a butcher on the purveyor Fargginay's website, but I just think it was created by an over zealous smoked pork fat fan. Heaven knows what the difference is between their 'Classic' and 'Gold' bacon fragrances is. "Scent by the gods" indeed.

I guess I'm just jealous. No one has come out with a 'Fresh Fried Chicken' eau de toilette.

Martha Stewart - The Chicken Whisperer?

Watch her make that chicken sleepy! No, seriously. Well, maybe not so much. If you've got a chicken that just won't adhere to your bedtime guidelines, Martha can help. When Henny Penny stays up past her bedtime in order to watch Stephen Colbert, use this helpful video.

Charlotte, N.C. - Chicken Joints Gone, But Not Forgotten

Wow, Triple Whole Birds!
While trolling the web for barnyard pimp stories, I found these on blog site Charlotte Eats. Obviously, it's certainly not a new trend for celebrities to invest in a chicken joint - even in Jellystone Park. These are circa 1940.

Flav's Fried Chicken - You Know You Want Some!

Flava Flav Serves It Up
However you will have to go to Clinton, Iowa to get your first taste of Flav's 99 cent wings. The Clinton Herald reported that with clock in tow, F-squared introduced his latest enterprise.

Hmm . . ." how'd he come up with this idea" you say? Maybe it went a bit like this: "Fiddy got Vitamin Water, Nelly got jeans - I gotta get something that will let the world get a taste of the real flava."

Yeah, I know. Most of those words were way too big for the underweight lover, but I'm sure it was something like that. The Herald's Scott Levine reports F-squared as saying ". . . I’m trying to start a franchise, so this is the beginning of it.” This all began when F-squared started hustling his wings at Mama Cimino's restaurant in Vegas. That's why his partner is Nick Cimino, who chose the site in Iowa and bought the building next to the Clinton Mama Cimino's. Heck, Ol' Mama considers the Clockster like a second, but scrawnie
r son -albeit fried to a dark crackly crunch. 

Hey, I'm not hating. I know good and well that as soon as I can reach an FFC I'll be the first one chomping down on my wing for a dolla' getting my own 'Flava of Love'. And if by some chance the Clockster brings FFC to D.C., those wings had better have Mumbo sauce (don't ask, I'll explain that D.C. thing later in another post) for the greater populace.

Now here's the real kicker - The Daily News reports that Flav has a culinary degree and restaurant experience. Back in his 'pre-Yeah Boyeeee' days he was just plain old William Drayton who cooked in the Long Island Nassau County Courthouse and actually fed somebody's children in the school system. Who da' thunk it?

Winging It with Jay Z

Yep it's true - Hova has invested in his cousin's Fulton Street, Brooklyn organic chicken joint.
It's a family affair since his mom and sister are also investors. It's seriously too easy to come up with the jokes, so I'll leave that to Andy Campbell of the Brooklyn Paper:
"Empire wing of mind!" and
“If you havin’ sauce problems, I feel bad for you son / I got 99 problems and a wing ain’t one.”
I've got to admit that I could scarf down some cheese fries and jalepeno poppers with wings with FITH (Fire in the Hole) sauce. It's like my personal trifecta of junk food - Cheesy, greasy & HOT!  I'll just have to add this to my list of chicken joints to investigate in NYC.
