There are a lot of problems in the world right now but as far as Ander Christensen of Lincoln, Nebraska is concerned, nothing is more important than the problem of...boneless chicken wings. That's right...Mr. Christensen stood "proudly" at the city council meeting to draw attention to the absurdity of boneless chicken wings saying children are being indoctrinated to believe these fowl concoctions are something more than just chicken tenders.
He told the city council: "Lincoln has the opportunity to be a social leader in this country. We have been casually ignoring a problem that has gotten so out of control that our children are throwing around names and words, without understanding their true meaning, and treating things as though they're normal." He continued, "I propose that we as a city remove the name boneless wings from our menus and from our hearts."
Here are some of the reasons he pointed out:
- Nothing about boneless chicken wings actually comes from the wing of a chicken. We would be disgusted if a butcher was mislabeling their cuts of meats, but then we go around pretending as though the breast of a chicken is its wing?
- Boneless chicken wings are just chicken tenders, which are already boneless. I don't go to order boneless tacos. I don't go and order boneless club sandwiches. I don't ask for boneless auto repair. It's just what's expected.
- We need to raise our children better. Our children are being raised to be afraid of having bones attached to their meat. That's where meat comes from, it grows on bones. We need to teach them that the wing of a chicken is from a chicken, and it's delicious."
WOW! And he actually took this up with the city council? Okay...do YOU want to tell him that some people call them "Buffalo Wings" or should I??!!
