Another hot-button issue has made its way to Twitter, where people are having a heated dialogue over which chicken wing shape is the best: drums or flats? And people online have opinions.

“If you prefer drums over flats you belong in jail,” @mvrquiese_ said.

“No lie, im mad at myself. I liked drums for so long… but I just figured out how to get the bones out of flats and I think my tastes have changed,” @_iHeartPink94 said.

“Drums are for people that choose quantity over quality. Flats are for people that choose quality over quantity. The best is flats,” @kajalika said.

“Ladies find you a man who likes drums so you get all the flats,” @StaceyRitzen said.

“I’m all about the flats but I do not judge my drums family, it just means we each know our respective roles when the basket of wings arrive,” @PatientRose said.
