BARTENDER | Artemus Ferris, 36

WHERE | Buffalo Wild Wings, Carolina Forest

QUESTION | So it looks like you have a shiner...want to tell us about it?

ANSWER | Playing big brother.

Why are they called Buffalo Wings when they are from a chicken?

The original creators are from Buffalo, N.Y.

What would happen if buffalos actually had wings and could fly?

Vehicle windshields would have to be more durable.

What's your favorite football team?

Cowboys, but I'm from New York.

Then how are you a Cowboys fan?

My older brothers are Cowboys fans, and they're America's Team.

Did you get any shiners from your brothers growing up?

Plenty.

When is the last time you went star gazing?

Early Spring. We sat at the lake by my house, drank beer and looked at the stars.

When is the last time you went cloud gazing - as in making imaginary animals out of the cloud shapes?

Ha-ha. Right now...out the windows.

In a dangerous situation, what is your weapon of choice - a plastic knife, an empty ketchup bottle, or a bat - as in the animal?

A bat, as in the animal. MacGyver never had the chance to use a bat in a dangerous situation so I'd be original. Count Chocula is delicious.

Would you rather be as blind as a bat or as deaf as an old deejay?

Blind as a bat. I love music. I wouldn't want to stop listening to music.

What's your favorite genre?

I listen to many different genres, except country.

As a blind bat, what would you miss seeing the most?

My mother's face when I came home to surprise her. I'm a momma's boy. I'm the youngest of nine kids. I was an uncle at age 2.
