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.
