Did you have a good Wingsday?
Wingsday is something Alex and Mark do as a best friend thing. But on this week's Whitney (NBC, Thursday nights), Alex and Mark had a nasty fight and stopped talking to each other.
So Whitney offered to go to Wingsday with him but he said he couldn't go with his girlfriend. She swore she could be a dude (even insisting she'd peed standing up once at Lollapolluza).
He decided to give it a shot.
Wingsday. Wings. And pool.
Their order arrives and Alex tells her she ordered the wrong wings, she should have gotten mild.
"Mild?" she asks. "Are these to eat or use instead of tampons? I ordered the nuclear."
He warns her but she takes a bite.
"Oh my God, this tastes like war," she says spitting them out. "Oh my God! My mouth's like -- like crying!"
And she sticks her tongue in blue cheese. And then she downs it like a shot glass. And she's not done yet.
I thought it was a very funny and relatable bit of physical humor. (But I eat wings and have had the hottest once. I stuck my tongue in my glass of diet coke, searching for the ice with my tongue.)
If you haven't watched the show before, give it a chance. Each week it's a funny show that just gets funnier.
