People everywhere are capitalizing on things "Obama." A German food company has now made Obama Chicken Fingers.

"We noticed that American products and the American way of eating are trendy at the moment," notes Sprehe Sales Manager, Judith Witting. "Americans are more relaxed. Not like us stiff Germans, like (Chancellor Angela) Merkel."

Apparently they were concerned that using the term "fingers" in the title would be a turn off.  Addressing concern that "fingers" means "finger food, Ms. Witting added, "It’s like hotdogs, no one would ever think they are actually from dogs."

Other obvious racial implications apparently went unnoticed.
