    Tender, Juicy Obama Fingers Hit the Shelves

    By Charles Hawley

    A German frozen food company hopes to raise sales with a new product: Obama fingers. The tender, fried chicken bits come with a tasty curry sauce. The company says it was unaware of the possible racist overtones of the product.

    I remember one time there was a family who came from Vietnam who moved to the Mobile area, opened up a "mom & pop" cleaners. They had a sign in the window that said, "Drop your pants here." I couldn't help but laugh at that.:laugh:
