According to Frank and Theresa's Anchor Bar website, it was neither overstock of chicken wings nor zealous Catholics that gave birth to this delicious creation, but merely a large group of friends of the owners' son. They showed up at the bar very late at night and very hungry. Theresa was about to throw the chicken wings into a stockpot, but decided she'd use them to improvise a snack for the fellas.

As an aside, may I suggest that you kindly offer euthanasia to any heretic who tries to serve you any carrot sticks or ranch dressing with your wings.
