As many as 80 friends, coworkers, enablers and hangers-on will cram into my long-suffering house for this noble occasion.<p>But even with all the extravagances I've cobbled together to keep them happy — large TVs, vintage arcade machines, working toilets — there has never been a shred of doubt that chicken is king.<p>I spend more at Popeye's on this particular Sunday than I spend on my wardrobe in a year, so great is the demand.
