Watchwoman: Did you think you’d ever see a caricature of Obama with slanted eyes hawking fried chicken?  I had nothing to do with this and it wasn’t printed in any USA newspaper, it was the Brits to print it, was first picked up by MSNBC, so don’t go accusing me of anything!  The Red Commie Chinese did it, not any American!  Sorry, I couldn’t get the video to embed here, but I’ve provided the LINK below to see it.  Two other Obama fried chicken places do exist besides the one in Red Communist China and that’s in Harlem, NY, and Brooklyn, NY.  If these appeared in any predominately white neighborhoods of the USA could you imagine the outcry!  YIKES!  Je$$e Jack$on and Al $harpton would make ton$ of money from the protests, but from Harlem and Brooklyn, NY, USA, not a word from the infamous race-card baiting reliables!   (Another thought?  You think they use trans-fat to fry in?  Where oh where are the food police?)  ▬  Donna Calvin

It’s Obama Fried Chicken! OFC pops up in China… but can the President also match the secret recipe of Colonel Sanders?

By MIKE O’BRIEN

Is Obama abandoning his bid for a second term in the White House and is giving Colonel Sanders a run for his money by opening a chain of fried chicken joints?

Now that’s change you can’t really believe in.

But in Beijing, China, a restaurant is actually calling itself OFC with a logo that looks alarmingly like the President dressed in the colonel’s clothes.

 

The presidential eatery: The Obama Fried Chicken restaurant in Beijing

Broad smiles: President Obama and the original master of Southern Fried Chicken Colonel Sanders

The catchphrase underneath, apparently says ‘We’re so cool, aren’t we?’

The Obama Fried Chicken could be a response to the U.S. filing a complaint with the World Trade Organization about Chinese tariffs on American chicken exports.

According to the New York Times, the tariffs affect an industry that employs about 300,000 people and range from 50 to 100 per cent, which means some Chinese importers paid as much as twice the price for American chicken.


Obama obsession? A lookalike of the president was used in an actual for KFC in Hong Kong

Maybe the Chinese have something of an Obama-chicken obsession.

Earlier this year in Hong Kong, an Obama lookalike was employed to advertize KFC.

The restaurant’s sign was first spotted by TheShanghaiist.com and picked up by msnbc.com. 

There are, of course, New York versions that caused quite a stir.

There is one in Harlem and one in Brooklyn.

Some people have complained the name plays into old racial stereotypes.

Selling point: Obama’s name also made it way on to the awning of this fast food joint in Harlem, New York
