United We Sandwich? BIG swing and a miss.
Time to get some boots on the ground there, Barack.

those both smack too much of cannibalism - eating an animal-faced person.

I'm sorry, but I don't get it. Should I be Lebanese?

I've been seeing these around Beirut. They're lame and entirely uninviting, but strictly speaking I don't think they count as rip-offs, since they obviously refer to the original work and campaign, as opposed to passing them off as original ideas (we have plenty genuine rip-offs floating around). Everybody in town who can get the English knows at a glance that they're a reference to the Obama campaign. Still, as far as spinoffs go, this may do the client more harm than good *shakes head*
