I guess this is legal over there. They must either be pushing stereotypes, love chicken,love Obama or a combination of all three. What do you guys think? By the way will KFC demand they stop infringing on there obvious rip off of their brand and logo?

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 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.
Maybe the Chinese have something of an Obama-chicken obsession.
Earlier this year in Hong Kong, an Obama lookalike was employed to advertize KFC.
The restaurant’s sign was first spotted by TheShanghaiist.com and picked up by msnbc.com.
There are, of course, New York versions that caused quite a stir.
There is one in Harlem and one in Brooklyn.
Some people have complained the name plays into old racial stereotypes.
