CLERMONT, FL - Cravings: we all get 'em. But what if you can't run out and get what you need? It's as easy as calling for delivery. However, when a Florida woman picked up the phone, it's safe to say she dialed the wrong number.

"Do you need police, fire or ambulance?" asks a dispatcher at the start of the 911 recording released by the Lake County Sheriff's Office.

"I need wings," answers a voice that deputies eventually identified as Liann Watson. "I'm gonna pass out if I don't get wings and cigarettes."

Watson later told investigators she was too drunk to drive and just wanted a ride. She got one - right down to the Lake County Jail. Deputies say between hysterically laughing and hysterically crying, she kept trying for that cigarette.

No word on whether she eventually got those wings, but she did get a charge of misuse of the 911 system and the title of Dumbass of the Day.
