Chicken. Do You Eat the Skin? Do You Dare Shun the Deliciousness?

If you've ever eaten grilled chicken, and I know you have, because I know most of you personally, you know there's a decision that comes with every plate.  And it ain't just a culinary decision either, it's almost a moral test, a measuring of will power with each bite.

The skin.  The chicken skin.  The fat-and-sodium-and-cholesterol-and-deliciousness-laden chicken skin.  There's a connundrum here.  

If you resist the skin, right there, at the dinner table, you become a high-performance fitness person, getting up for a morning jog at 5:30, playing Olympic handball over lunch, riding your mountain bike in the Adirondacks, and high-fiving your way to a sensible dinner, just like a person in a Michelob Ultra commercial.

If you go for the skin, you become Nero -- luxuriating on a bed of feathers, wine and delicious-chicken skin juice trailing over your lips.  You're enjoying all life has to offer.  Let the commoners worry about health, I've got luxuries to luxuriate in!

What do you do!  Who do you want to be!

Reckoning Comments!

I can't do it -- I've got to leave the skin.  I may consider pacing around my apartment as 'exercise', and I may consider going down to the bodega to get some milk 'getting a workout in', but I've always got that one connection to TV high-performance-fitness-people.

I voted yes, but just to make this more interesting I invite everyone to go to 2:24 of the video linked below before voting.

I could've sworn it was going to be this one.

Chicken meat tends to be bland.  Of course you eat the skin!  Otherwise, why bother?
