Chicken Wing Shortage
The Super Bowl is nine days away and a chicken wing shortage is on the horizon. This year there will be 12.3 million fewer wings because of last year’s drought which drove up the price of chicken feed. Despite the shortage, Americans are expected to consume 1.23 billion wings on Super Bowl Sunday. The Super Bowl is the second biggest day for wings, Thanksgiving is the first.

Brown thought she was unwrapping jewelry, but instead there was a block with the letter “B” — spelling the word baby. She said she’d been waiting 10 years to become a grandmother and judging by her reaction there is nothing that could have brought her more joy.
