Uh, so wow.

Uh, so wow.

Well, so this happened. In a dispute with fellow editor Tim Turi, Game Informer’s Dan Ryckert decided to take their fight to the public. What started as a mere Google Docs poll between how people prefer their chicken wings (boneless, obviously) quickly became a trending topic propelled entirely by the games industry.

…and with that, the races began. At just over an hour, #TeamBoneless became Twitter’s most trending topic, for little other reason than to settle a dispute. So much for journalists reporting on the news, not making the new, amirite?

I have no disrespect for miniature drumsticks, but the effort-to-payoff ratio is so much less than if you simply grab some utensils – chopsticks preferably – and dunk ’em in some bleu cheese for that fine flavah.
