It's Obama Fried Chicken! OFC pops up in China...
Daily Mail UK ^ | Oct. 2, 2011 | Mike O'brien

Posted on 10/02/2011 8:31:47 AM PDT by COUNTrecount

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 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.

Cashing in on the concept of All dress and no substance. Do the meals come with peas?

Couldn't have put it better myself. Now we need someone to copy the logo and append "Hope" and "Change."

Caution! Hot, buttery, fresh made biscuits have been replaced with apple slices.

And don’t forget the arugula (whatever the hell that is...)

This is actually pretty common in other countries, adopting the cachet of a famous chain but changing a few of the details

I’ve seen restaurants in Africa back in the 90’s named after Michael Jackson or one of his songs and using his picture.

Nicks Fried Chicken in Kaiserslautern Germany tasted just like KFC. Nick swore he had the recipe.

My favorite was McPato’s in David, Panama. They guy wanted a McDonalds franchise, but they wouldn’t give it to him for some reason, so he did up his own version.

If they also sold pints of Ripple in a brown bag and six-packs of Colt 45, the competition couldn’t touch them.

I would be willing to make an offer on the trademark of the Obamamao! Think of how many chickens you could sell over there, and they’ve got the gold!

Is that a sandwich, or do they shred/crumble the waffle for use a coating instead of breadcrumbs, cornflakes, etc?

Wait...isn't associating Obama with fried chicken...racist? What next...we will see "Obama watermelon" peddled at fruit stands?

But, as long as the left does it, it is always okay, with the Dem party. Let a right wing capitalist entrepreneur try something like this and all the news media would be at is door criticizing and chastising him.

Well, whatever the reason for this...one thing is certain. The Chinese have Obama’s number. They know he is one Plucked-up chicken.

a logo that looks alarmingly like the President Zero

Why is that "alarming"? I think it is perfectly appropriate!

Thanks. It looked like Queens or Brooklyn.

There is just a certain look....

Interesting that the Obama Fried Chicken store serves Halal (”Muslim Kosher”) food.

Hmmm.... Wonder why.

What could possibly be the connection?

It's a real puzzler, isn't it?
