Obama Fried Chicken'? If You Go to China...


So this exists: A President Barack Obama-inspired fried chicken chain in -- where else? -- China.

The "OFC" sign -- which we can only assume stands for "Obama Fried Chicken" -- looks suspiciously like the KFC logo and depicts the president dressed as Colonel Sanders, complete with suspenders and bow tie. According to Shanghaiist, the Chinese slogan in the lower-right corner means, "We're so cool, aren't we?"

The Daily Mail posits that 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.

But this isn't the first time Obama's likeness has been used to sell chicken: Back in February, KFC -- the real one -- ran a commercial in Hong Kong in which an Obama lookalike was suddenly squashed by a giant chicken sandwich in the midst of giving a speech. The ad was quickly pulled, though a KFC spokesman said "it was meant to be a spoof and no disrespect was intended."
