Here's a real life story I could classify as could only happen in corona time.

wing

 

Ander Christensen, 27, appeared before the Lincoln City Council governing body at a public meeting and laid out the case for the city's restaurants and stores to stop claiming chicken tenders are "boneless chicken wings."

 

"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. "I go into nice family restaurants and I see people throwing this name around and pretending as though everything is just fine," he said. "I'm talking about boneless chicken wings."

 

Christensen had to wait for laughter to subside before laying out the case that "boneless chicken wings" are composed of meat that doesn't actually come from the wing of the bird.

 

"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?" he asked.

 

He said the issue even could affect children's development. "Our children are raised being afraid of having bones attached to their meat," he said. "That's where meat comes from. It grows on bones."

 

Christensen offered some possible alternative names for "boneless chicken wings." "We can call them Buffalo-style chicken tenders," he said. "We can call them 'wet tenders.' We can call them 'saucy nugs,' or 'trash.'

 

"We can take these steps and show the country that's where we stand and that we understand that we've been living a lie for far too long, and we know it, because we feel it in our bones."

 

You go Christensen!

    I love this. I used to order them thinking it was wrong meat and then realized it was not. They should be called nuggets or tenders or chunks, but not boneless wings. Great piece.

    not a fan of wings (because of the bones; another discussion); I support truth in labelling!

    Some restaurants have an on the bone filet mignon on the menu. There is no such thing. They use a food glue and paste it to the meat enabling them to charge a higher price.

    I'm such a pessimist. For some reason, I could see this happening even in a Pre-Covid world.
