Flavor Flav opens his first chicken restaurant

Flavor Flav

As if he could read our minds, Flavor Flav granted our collective wish and opened his own chicken spot in Clinton, Iowa. After the success of his ninety-nine-cent wings at Las Vegas restaurant Mama Cimino, he took the opportunity to capitalize on his chicken-frying prowess and go into business for himself. Flav's Fried Chicken opened its doors today, and its proud owner promised the local paper that his presence will not be a rarity. He assured the Clinton Herald that he'd be in for promotions often and would even man the fryer himself from time to time. 

Apparently, the hip-hop-pioneer-turned-reality-star has a culinary degree and restaurant experience. Go figure. I was so ready to say all types of snarky things about eating food Flavor Flav had his hands on, but he can probably hold his own in a kitchen. I will take this opportunity to point out the delicious irony in a founding member of Public Enemy (seems so, so long ago now) opening his own chicken joint, though. Hopefully, his wings are just as tasty.
