Fuzzy Zoeller was unavailable for comment

German frozen food manufacturer Sprehe is marketing fried chicken strips under the name "Obama Fingers".

You know Germans always make good stuff!


  1. After all the gnashing-of-teeth and rending-of-hair over the "monkey-shooting" comic,...

    I can't WAIT to hear the Usual Suspects start screaming about the "Obvious Racist Message" inherent in a product that connects The One to... (wait for it)

    Fried Chicken.

    Oh. The. Humanity.

  2. Hmmm...golden brown on the outside, white on the inside...seems an apt name.

  3. ...there has to be a way to work the included "curry dip" into that metaphor.

  4. "--- ...there has to be a way to work the included "curry dip" into that metaphor. ---"

    A coded and very oblique reference to Bobby Jindal perhaps?

  5. The real hidden message is the Golden Gate Bridge.
    Still trying to crack that one...


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
