Wing Volitivity in the Air due to the Superbowl!

Quote:
Poultry Industry Battles Wing Price Volatility as Super Bowl Nears
By Justin Rohrlich Jan 29, 2013 1:13 pm
In other news, ranch dressing unseats bleu cheese as Americans' favorite wing dip.

According to the National Chicken Council’s 2013 Wing Report, “more than 1.23 billion wing portions will be consumed during Super Bowl weekend in 2013.” (It seems important to point out here that, per a new poll conducted by the NCC and Harris Interactive, bleu cheese has been handed a stunning defeat by ranch dressing as Americans’ favorite wing dip.)

The wholesale price of wings is at a historical high -- and wings have, in recent years, become the most expensive part of the chicken. Right now, the wholesale price of wings in the Northeast is hovering around $2.11 a pound, up 14% from last year. Ten years ago, wings were wholesaling for $0.68 a pound.

I don't get the fascination with chicken wings... there's nothing to eat on them, I just throw them away and don't bother.

And you better hope poohbear doesn't see this thread!

Yes... but that's not the question.

Again: "What's a 'Volitivity'?"

And I didn't catch the original typo! The bold letters just drew my eye to that spelling of it.

Edit: And wow, it seems it is a word too! Volitivity (double checking I'm spelling this right now, or wrong depending on your view! )

And I thought it was especially made up to the describe the Superbowl chicken wings prize fluctuations.

BTW, did you recognize the poohbear_ncs value has increased around 300% in the last ten years? Maybe we should think about introducing him into the world of fast food (and see how fast he'll be)

Memo to self: Refuse ALL invitations from "friends" to watch the Super Bowl at their house .

Memo to self: Change the locks on all doors & windows before the Super Bowl.

Why can't we all eat nachos and be friends?

Well, you would be if you sold your wings... Apparently that's the only valuble part.
