TMZ has obtained photos of Flav at his new "Flav's Fried Chicken" restaurant in Clinton, Iowa yesterday -- where he debuted his eye-popping yellow and orange menus ... and his self-indulgent sign out front. 
 
So we gotta ask ...

Ever since he first appeared on the Surreal Life he's been selling out. He's basically become the real life embodiment of the early 1900s blackface performers.

This is a case where I don't EVEN want to know the "special spices" or "special sauces" COATING his chicken.

Might want to consider a "Sanitation Service Franchise" instead.

Last time I checked, black people aren't the only ones that like fried chicken so stop injecting race where it is not relevant you sh*t disturber. ::shakes head:: no wonder the country is messed up.

The fact you would equate fried chicken to Black people is in or itself, setting us back.

How the hell is Flava gonna sell fried chicken in Iowa? That's like a white man trying to sell mayonnaise in the hood! WTF?!?!

Potatoes IS the correct spelling for the plural of potato, according to Webster's Dictionary (anybody use them anymore?) What sets back America is his prices.... they seem a bit high to me. I don't live in the sticks or New York City but 99 cents for 1 wing sounds a bit steep!!

That fried chicken/black person concept is such a stupid thing of the past, it actually took me several moments to even think of the association, and figure out what the hell the TMZ writer meant with that headline. Where's YOUR mindset? Sheesh.

A chicken wing consists of 3 parts. Corporate marketing/advertising came up with throw away one part, chop the remaining 2 parts in half and BAM......we now call 1/3 of a chicken wing, a chicken wing and DOUBLE their chicken product to gullible consumers.

They serve 6, 12, etc. "chicken wings" but each of those is only 1/3 of a chicken wing.


They dump sauce on it and the masses never know they've been had.

The chicken wings are the cheapest cut and they figure slather it in sauce, soak the consumer MARCH to the bank.

Yep, it's tasty but a slippery slide advertising and marketing-wise.

SMILES all around at chicken corporate and banks.
