For that fried chicken taste, try Obama fingers next time you’re in Germany

A German company is now selling fried chicken strips under the brand name of “Obama fingers.”

Before jumping to the wrong conclusion about a product from a company that’s most famous export is its army, the connotation isn’t intentional. The company behind the product said that it wasn’t aware of the stereo-type about African Americans and fried chicken, and had picked the name to cash in on Obama’s global popularity.

Just for good measure, Spiegel also explains that the fingers aren’t actual fingers, because apparently Germans don’t get that part of the name either.
