Should We Change The Name Of Boneless Chicken Wings?


“Unless you’re going to strap those things to the side of a jet, you can’t call them a wing. They’re a chicken tender with sauce. Saucy nugs, at best.”

This is a quote from Ander Christiansen of Lincoln Nebraska who went to a city council meeting and pleaded that his city lead the way to a new future, a future without chicken wing ignorance.

“Lincoln has an opportunity to be a social leader in this country.” He was interrupted after this by a few sniggers and he told off the offenders. “I propose we remove the term “boneless wings” from our menus and from our hearts,” Clearly passionate about chicken he goes on to say “Boneless chicken wings are just chicken tenders, which are already boneless,” he said. “I don’t order boneless tacos. I don’t go and order boneless club sandwiches. I don’t ask for boneless auto repair.”

He is very on the ball, I do not go to an auto repair store and ask for a boneless auto repair!

Christiansen’s dream outcome of his crusade is simple: just call them buffalo-style chicken tenders.

Should the world give him what he wants?
