Let The Revolution Begin!

Lincoln Nebraska resident Andrew Christensen appeared before the City Council to speak on a first world problem.

“I propose that we as a city remove the name boneless wings from our menus and from our hearts. These are our reasons why: Number one, nothing about boneless chicken wings actually come 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?” said Christensen.

“Number two, boneless chicken wings are just chicken tenders, which are already boneless,” Christensen continued. “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.”

“Number three, 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,” Christensen said.

In a warped sort of way, he does have a point.

    My first instinct was to laugh at this guy for several reasons: his bringing up this issue, his appearance, etc. But then I realized that this is one purpose of government, to allow the voices/opinions of citizens to be heard. Not everyone has the time or inclination to run for office and become a politician, but we all can become more engaged by watching meetings of our elected officials, letting them know what we think (by speaking at a meeting, phone call, or email). If you find they aren’t listening, maybe it’s time to vote in someone new. By becoming more engaged we also become more informed voters.

      Luke Warm,

      Thanks for the comment.

      We have to say that we did laugh. Not so much at the way he looks or anything, but the issue. We think he has a point, albeit a point that a City Council cannot address.

      It takes some intestinal fortitude to stand up and speak in front of what essentially is the entire population of a town or city. Not many people do it and not many people do it as well as this gentleman did.

      We’re like you…..we applaud his getting involved, bringing an issue up, making a point in a non-violent way, etc.

      We’re not sure that we agree with him, but we are glad that he is part of the chorus of voices from citizens.

      Thanks again.
