Germany Food Company Sells Fried Chicken Called Obama Fingers

German Food Company Honors Obama, Offends World

A German company has its very own funcooker on its hands. To pay homage to America and its new president, a German purveyor of frozen-food delicacies launched a new product — Obama Fingers. "Tender, juicy pieces of chicken breast, coated and fried" It's like chicken. Like fried chicken.

Oh. Whoops! But can we really expect a German food company to know (though maybe market research could've checked?) that fried chicken is tinged with years of racial stereotyping in the US? A company spokesperson said it was simply trying to capitalize on the fact that American food is trendy and selling right now. And, really, what is more American than that?
