Yes We're Going to a Chicken Party

Proving once again my theory that Chinese cuisine was created with Jews in mind, Beijing entrepreneurs made it way too easy for yours truly recently when they opened—wait for it...Obama Fried Chicken!

How did those wacky Chinese folks know I was long overdue for another post about CHICKEN?

Okay, so maybe it's not all about me.  The Daily Mail:

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.

Wait, Obama Fried Chicken is a response to a chicken tax controversy?  What is this, some sort of Bizarro World Boston Tea Party?  A Chicken Party, if you will?

Now that the proverbial chicken has hit the fan (what?), will the Colonel issue a Chicken Fatwa ("Schmaltzwa"?) on his clearly ripped-off likeness? Or will he take it as a compliment that the Chinese have ditched his "Finger-Lickin' Good!" catch-phrase, in favor of the slogan, "We're So Cool, Aren't We?" (printed in Chinese characters on the awning depicted in the image above)? Will the Obama administration sue for defamation of character?  Will Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry start hanging drumsticks from their hats? And what about the coleslaw? WHAT ABOUT THE MOTHERFUCKING COLESLAW?!
So many questions.  And they all taste like chicken.
