Nebraska Man Pleads With City Council To Rename The 'Lie' That Is 'Boneless Chicken Wings' In Viral Video

Some people are passionate about charitable causes, some people are passionate about politics.

And some people are passionate about chicken wings.

Meet Ander Christensen. Ander is very passionate about chicken wings.

He's also very passionate about how we, as a society, refer to chicken products.

Christensen, a resident of Lincoln, Nebraska, appeared before the city council to plea that the city eliminate "boneless chicken wings" from the vocabulary of its food service.

As soon as he expresses that he is referring to boneless wings, laughter can be heard off-camera, at which point Christensen pauses and asks the man to stop laughing.

Christensen—a self described Husband, Chemical Engineer, Storyteller—also posted on Twitter that he felt "it was time for [him] to get involved in local politics."

People are becoming heavily involved with the semantics of boneless wings.

Christensen is adamant that not only are "boneless wings" false advertising, but they are teaching children to be "afraid" of bones in their meat.

"We have been casually ignoring a problem that has gotten so out of control that our children are throwing around names and words without even understanding their true meaning, treating things as though they're normal," Christensen said, expressing his indignation over the use of the phrase.

"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?"

Has one man ever been so able to unify people under a common issue?

Christensen's video has now been seen more times than the amount of people who are residents of the city of Lincoln:

"Frankly, this is an issue that's too large for a stage like the Lincoln, Neb., City Council..."
"This is probably something that would have to be addressed by the Department of Agriculture, since they take care of all the labeling."
"It's gotten over three million hits, we may as well take this to the national level."

Christensen's passion for the falsehood of boneless wings could well be the one unifying issue of 2020. Officially, the city of Lincoln took the issue under advisement, though they have yet to issue a ruling.
