Back during a few months when the TV show was being filmed from “Dillahunty International Studios” rather than its normal location at the public access TV station, we stopped eating at Threadgill’s for a while and started going to a place near Lakeline Mall called Pluckers Wing Bar. Some people didn’t like it, but I managed to get mildly addicted to their hot wings.
There’s this challenge at Pluckers, that if you eat 25 “Fire in the Hole” wings, you get your picture taken for inclusion on the “Wall of Flame.” I’ve been meaning to leave my mark there, so yesterday I skipped breakfast and lunch and went for it.
The picture I got is of me giving an anguished stare at the empty basket of bones. Written in sharpie at the bottom is the inscription: “There is NO GOD!” If you want to drop by and admire my handywork, I’m on the left side of the board near the ceiling, as that was the best spot I could find on the fairly crowded wall.
Also got a t-shirt for cheap (unless you count the price of 25 wings) so that I can proudly display my accomplishment the next time I’m on TV. I feel enriched and character developed, let me tell ya.
