Andrew Christensen wants the council to mandate a name change. He says boneless chicken wings are just chicken tenders, which are already boneless, and shouldn't be called chicken wings.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

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.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

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.
