Good morning, Netizens…
A German fast food company, in hopes of increasing their sales, hit on a new fast food, Obama Fingers with curry sauce. The company, according to the AP piece, says it meant no racist overtones, as it wasn’t aware of any implied racism.
Many sales executives around the world have drawn the same conclusion: What better poster child for hope than US President Barack Obama? There are Obama dolls, Obama T-shirts, Obama soap-on-a-rope. There is even Obama thong underwear.
Sprehe, a German company that has all manner of frozen delicacies for sale, has come up with a new product it states is selling well. The “fingers” in question are tender pieces of chicken breast, coated and fried.
Would you be offended if you encountered “Obama Fingers” in your favorite fast food store?
