Yah, I'm pretty sure that the sauce originated in Buffalo, NY. So they called it Buffalo sauce, and then they got Buffalo wings.

Some questions are easily answered by Google. So...

Eggs, dinosaurs laid eggs far before the chicken was around.

Buffalo chicken is actually a horrible concoction created by KFC as the result of the forced breeding of chickens and buffalo. But boy, is it delicious!

Once upon a time, there was a woman named Teressa Lenz, who owned the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY with her husband Frank. One late night, their son Dominic dropped by for a visit with some of his hungry college buddies. Teressa wasn't sure what to feed them, so she took some chicken wings (which were normally discarded or used for stock), deep-fried them and dipped them in sauce, and served them with celery sticks and bleu cheese. Needless to say, they were a huge hit, and the legendary Buffalo wing was born. The end.
