1. To make the dip: In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, blue cheese, milk, lemon juice, celery seed, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours before serving.
2. To make the Buffalo wings: Using a heavy cleaver, chop each wing between the joints to make 3 pieces. Discard the wing tips (or save for another use, such as making chicken stock). If desired, ask the butcher to do this for you, or purchase precut chicken wings. Let the wings stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before frying.
3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter with the garlic over low heat. Divide the garlic butter between 2 large bowls. Add the red hot sauce to one bowl and whisk well to combine. Add the green hot sauce to the other bowl and whisk. Set the bowls aside.
4. Preheat the oven to 200°F. Put a large wire cake rack over a jelly roll pan. In a deep Dutch oven, melt shortening over high heat to a depth of 2 to 3 inches and heat it to 365°F. In batches, without crowding, deep-fry the chicken wings until they are golden brown and show no sign of pink when pierced at the bone (remove a wing from the fat to check the doneness), about 3 minutes. Using a wire-mesh skimmer, transfer the wings to the racks and keep warm in the oven while frying the remaining wings.
5. Add half the wings to each bowl of sauce and toss well to coat. Serve the coated wings immediately, with the blue cheese sauce on the side for dipping and an empty bowl to collect the bones.
NOTE: Buffalo wings have become so popular that the precut wings can be purchased in 3- to 10-pound bags at price clubs and many supermarkets.
