The New Colossus

A promotion being run by Subway stores in Germany, poking fun at Americans for their tendency to be overweight,has been pulled. The ad campaign was a cross promotion with the movie "Super Size Me."

Aside from wondering why so many of Yahoo's "Oddly Enough" stories come from Germany - the country that brought us the Cannibal Trial, the Live Nude Mannequins, and a whole host of other goodies - I have to wonder how Tom DeLay found out about this promotion. I thought that hardcore conservatives didn't care what "Old Europe" thought about them.

I also wonder why a group calling itself the Center for Individual Freedom would be so critical of a corporate advertising campaign.
