Buffalo Bison Chili Freedom

I'm making Buffalo-style bison chili tonight. That would be just a regular two bean bison chili with a healthy dose of Frank's Red Hot sauce aka the greatest Buffalo wing sauce know to man. A little known story is that on the 8th day, the heavens opened up and a mighty hot sauce rained down upon earth. The early humans reveled in it's subtle cayenne heat, bringing warmth to their freezing tongues. This holy recipe remained undiscovered for thousands of years until a few drops were found encased in amber underneath the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY in 1964 and quickly the Buffalo Wing was created. Today we can enjoy this pepper miracle in our own homes.

Back to the bison chili; I find it very strange that just a few years ago the bison was nearly extinct and today it's readily available in the local supermarket. What's next- bald eagle nuggets? Is this why we brought this animal back? So we can have a lean protein filled delicious meat source? Buffalos have rights too! I probably don't have to worry too much about eating bison because my 100% ground bison "contains no animal byproducts". I thought ground bison pretty much would be the exact definition of animal byproducts.
If it's not animal, then what is it? Nobody can know for sure, but I do know that the bison represents freedom and the American dream. And freedom tastes pretty freakin good with some beans and the greatest Buffalo wing sauce known to man.
