Nebraska Man Urges City Council To Take Up Chicken Wing Terminology


Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. If you've got a bone to pick, a city council meeting is a good place to air a grievance. Andrew Christensen of Lincoln, Neb., sure thought so.


ANDREW CHRISTENSEN: 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.

MARTIN: Christensen says his city should bravely mandate a name change. After all, boneless wings aren't really wings at all. So how about it, Lincoln? Or are you chicken? It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
