Here are five things that people do that screw-up chicken wings. So please DON'T DO THESE THINGS.

1. Use a fork to eat your chicken wing - Wings are hand food. They are meant to be held in your hand and dunked in blue cheese. Using a fork doesn't make you look proper, it makes you look like you don't know how to eat a wing.

4. Leave Meat On The Bone - The only way to really eat a wing is to make sure you get all the meat off the bone. If there is any left on, you are doing an injustice to that wing.

5. Use Ranch For Dipping - Yes, this is a big debate, but wings were meant to be dunked in blue cheese. Ranch should only be used as a last resort after all the blue cheese in the world disappears.
