“Why are buffalo wings so small when buffalo are so big?”

"Buffalo wings” are chicken wings that were first popularized in Buffalo, New York. The wings are not from a buffalo animal, but there are jokes.

“Why are buffalo wings so small? Because the animal is pretty big, right?” was asked on Yahoo! Answers on March 23, 2011. “Why Are A Buffalo’s Wings So Small? I mean I’ve seen the animal before and it’s huge but whenever I order buffalo wings at a restaurant they are so small. Do they get the wings from baby buffaloes maybe?” was asked on Yahoo! Answers on October 24, 2011. “Why are Buffalo wings so small when Buffalo are so big?” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on April 3, 2019.


Wikipedia: Buffalo wing
A Buffalo wing, in the cuisine of the United States, is an unbreaded chicken wing section (flat or drumette) that is generally deep-fried then coated or dipped in a sauce consisting of a vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce and melted butter prior to serving. The Buffalo wing was invented in 1964 at Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York by Teressa Bellissimo. They are traditionally served hot, along with celery sticks and carrot sticks with blue cheese dressing for dipping.

There are 800 wings per buffalo. They have to be small to fit
