Obama Fingers

A  German food company,Sprehe, capitalizing on the current popularity of American food, and Obamamania, offers consumers this tasty looking product:

Unfortunately, the race issue has raised its ugly head. Charles Hawley of  Spiegel Online worries:

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.

To be quite honest, naming any food after a current American President causes my brow to furrow. When will this madness end?

UPDATE:

HA! Don’t look now, but Michelle Malkin has an Obama Fingers photoshop contest going on at her website. Thanks to wxwzrd, for the heads up.

HEH!:

See America is an Obamanation for the perfect photoshop.

UPDATE II:

I may have to start a new category just for the food related Obamamania. Because even as Obama’s poll numbers drop, Obama delectables seem to be on the increase:
