If they only understood where those fingers have been.
Ahhh well... Get'em while they're hot.
German Fried Chicken: Tender, Juicy Obama Fingers Hit the Shelves - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - InternationalA German frozen food company hopes to raise sales with a new product: Obama fingers. The tender, fried chicken bits come with a tasty curry sauce. The company says it was unaware of the possible racist overtones of the product.
Reminds me of a hilarious bit of comedy I heard years ago on a FL radio station. A couple guys acting like rednecks talking about a chicken restaurant that offered 50% off on Martin Luther King Day.
Damn that was funny.
Now to the hyper-sensitivity section.
I's sure Libs would have loved to have seen Bush's Pure Bull steaks.For Americans in Germany, though, there is a risk that the product might be seen as racially insensitive. Fried chicken has long been associated with African-Americans in the US -- naming strips of fried chicken after the first black president could cause some furrowing of brows.
Damn that would have been a good marketing plan to entice a few Libs to try eating meat... then again...
