The Obama Brand Can Sell Anything

How tender are Obama-Fingers? I hate dry frozen chicken with a passion...

This is kind of funny and kind of sad.

So a company is looking to break into the fried chicken market. After years of searching for a brand that was comparable to the greatness of the chicken's taste, one Barack Obama found his way to the White House in America. And that was their eureka moment! We'll name our chicken after one of the most popular public figures in the world.

When a spokesperson for the company was asked if they thought the move could be perceived as an attempt to capitalize off of racial stereotypes, their only comment was: "We sell it with curry dipping sauce, not BBQ or ranch."

The NAACP could not be reached for comment. But after bringing the product to the attention of my uncle, his only response was: "LOL."

I'll take that to mean that Black America isn't reading too much into the Obama Fingers fiasco.
