A bloke nicknamed the “saucy nuggs guy” has made a furious speech against boneless chicken wings – saying people have been “been living a lie”.
Taking the issue to a meeting of Lincoln City Council in Nebraska, US, Ander Christensen said the phrasing “boneless wings” must urgently be removed from all restaurants because the meat is not from the wings of a chicken.
Boneless wings are actually chicken breast meat – in most cases – which does not contain bones anyway.
Wearing a shirt and tie, Ander argued passionately that the name should be changed to “buffalo style chicken tenders” or “saucy nugs”, or even “trash”, so that people and kids will learn to appreciate eating “real meat” off the bone.
“I propose that we as a city remove the name boneless wings from our menus and from our hearts,” he said.
In the video of his fiery speech, Ander says: “I go into nice family restaurants and I see people throwing this name around and pretending as though everything is just fine.
“I’m talking about boneless chicken wings.”
At this point, someone actually burst out laughing but Ander keeps a straight face and tells them to be quiet, before ploughing on with the dead-serious debate.
Hammering the issue home, he added: “I don’t go to order boneless tacos, I don’t go to order boneless club sandwiches, I don’t ask for boneless auto repair.”
Finally, in an impassioned conclusion, he said: “We need to raise our children better.
“Our children are being raised being afraid of having bones attached to their meat.”
Since Ander’s speech was televised, his campaign has gone viral and many viewers are on his side.
Sharing the video, one Twitter user wrote: “Finally a platform to unite us all.
“Dude wore a tie to make this statement so the city council would know he means business, too.”
A second commented: “With all the lunacy and division going on in the world at present, finally we have someone fighting for a real and just cause.”
Someone else quipped: “I totally agree, if we don’t stop this now, what’s next, Boneless Drumsticks, Boneless Neckbones, stop the madness before its too late.”
