The Internet provides many of us with an outlet to have our most depraved food debates. For example, we all remember where we were when we learned that a hot dog can also be a sandwich. Meanwhile, there are others who are still fighting the good fight when it comes to pineapple on pizza. There is a new ongoing dispute that has tickled our fancy, though.

This debate is centered around boneless chicken wings. Many believe that these wings do not deserve such a title. One Nebraska man named Ander Christensen has decided to take this debate one step further. He brought the issue to everyone’s attention at a recent Lincoln City Council meeting. We cannot stop laughing at how passionate he is about the issue, as he will not rest until his request has been fulfilled.

“I propose that we as a city remove the name boneless wings from our menu and from our hearts,” he said. That’s one of our favorite quotes from this speech but there was no shortage of hilarious one-liners to choose from.

We just want to know if he practiced this speech at all beforehand or if he was speaking from the heart. Only Ander can answer that question. Three crucial points were made and there were no lies being told. At long last, someone is willing to tell the truth.

The boneless wings are not actually derived from the bone of a chicken and this is obvious. Ander was not done there. He also pointed out that these wings are essentially just chicken tenders. Lastly, he is worried about the children who will not know where their meat is coming from. “We would be disgusted if a butcher mislabeled cuts of meat,” said Christensen. Preach, sir, preach!

He’s suggested a few new terms for the “wings”, including “trash.” While we would not go that far, he makes a lot of awesome points. They probably should be renamed. No formal decisions have been handed down on the matter but he’s sparking a very important conversation. His speech got everyone talking and that’s all that matters. Where do you stand on this all-important topic? Please let us know!

I must apologize. It was not intentional or planned, but I did interrupt a fellow citizen during the open mic portion of today’s council meeting. I was wrong, and I am sorry.
