A science project recently proved what most people from Buffalo and Western New York already know.

A kid's science project about how eating chicken wings is now going viral and we can't argue with the outcome.

WHAT ARE CHICKEN WINGS?

Chicken Wings are a deep fried dished that was made popular in Buffalo, New York, and uses the wing flap or drumette for the meat.

WHO INVENTED CHICKEN WINGS?

There are several different stories, but the one story most people believe to be true is that the Chicken Wing was invented at Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York by  Teresa Bellissimo in 1964.

WHY ARE THEY CALLED BUFFALO WINGS?

The style that is most popular, deep dried and covered in hot sauce and butter was the original way Tresea Bellissimo made them, and how many of the places around Buffalo and Western New York make them.

WHY IS THIS SCIENCE PROJECT GOING VIRAL?

It is simple, this kid's whole project was to prove that eating chicken wings makes you happy. He conducted several studies with his family and found that all of them were happier after eating chicken wings. Most people in Buffalo would also agree that they are happier after having an order or two of wings.


We assume that this kid did get an A+ on his project because you really can't argue that having some hot, crispy, saucy wings wouldn't make you happier.

So if you are looking for some happiness, go out and get some wings. Science proves they make you happier.
