Europeans just love Barack Obama, since he's not constantly calling them names and touching them inappropriately like his predecessor. So the Germans named some terrible fried chicken product after him, as an homage.
Mmmm, "Obama Fingers:" These "tender, juicy pieces of chicken breast" are "coated and fried." Then they're served with a delicious curry dip. So: Fried chicken and a sauce that could be from Indonesia or maybe Pakistan. (And to think the White House was once upset over some silly Sasha and Malia dolls.)
German food company Sprehe says: you're welcome, America's first black president!
"It was supposed to be a homage to the American lifestyle and the new US president," said... Judith Witting, sales manager for Sprehe...
"Americans are more relaxed. Not like us stiff Germans, like (Chancellor Angela) Merkel."
It never even occurred to Sprehe that the company might be accused of racial insensitivity. Anyone who thinks "Obama Fingers" are racist just needs to chillax with a carton of their "Obama Ice" watermelon sorbet.
