Americans are notorious for eating things that the rest of the world find completely vile.

Foreigners have picked on our love for favorite pizza topping (pineapple), mom's comfort dish (meatloaf) and even our favorite ballgame snack, chicken wings.

Apparently so.

Don't believe me?

Melted butter optional.
