Obama Fried Chicken

The owners of Royal Fried Chicken were just trying to capture the zeitgeist when they changed the name of their establishment last week to—this is pretty unfortunate—Obama Fried Chicken. “Community leaders came. They told us we have to change the name,” said Mohammad Jabbar, the manager. “They said if you don’t change it they will take action.” Consequently, Obama Fried Chicken will be renamed again this weekend to Popular Fried Chicken. Action has yet to be taken against the nearby Obama Beauty Shop, whose owner says its $49.99 Michelle Obama wig is a bestseller.
