Hooters Is Giving Away Free Wings to Single People on Valentine's Day

Trade a pic of your ex for some wings.

For many, Valentine's Day is a day that surfaces sour memories of lost loves, mistakes made, and, hopefully, a couple of funny stories. Those wistful recollections can be turned into a classy Valentine's Day dinner on which you don't need a significant other to foot the bill.

Hooters, that reliable sitcom punchline, is tossing you some free boneless chicken wings -- aka chicken nuggets for adults -- on February 14. All you have to do is take a metaphorical dump on an ex. Go to your local Hooters (or Hooters website because there's a pandemic taking place) on Valentine's Day with a photo of your ex. Order ten wings. Then just hand over the photo of your ex to go in the paper shredder, and you'll get ten free boneless wings. That's the whole deal for the restaurant's annual Shred Your Ex promo. 

In most years, you'd have to endure the giggles of prepubescent boys with Buffalo-orange fingers, but you're probably going to be spared that sight this year. Like the restaurant has made available in years past, you can digitally "shred your ex" through a faux-shredder online. Then you'll get a digital coupon for those free wings. 

It's only available for one day, so don't sit around for too long wondering which ex to shred. You can shred as many as you want. You will, however, not get 10 wings per ex shredded. No matter how many you've got, you'll only have ten free wings.
