Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

These are the times we live in, people. Snuggled up next to Yummy Yummy Chinese Restaurant in on Myrtle Ave in Fort Greene is a most curious storefront to come: the Obama Deli.

Complete with likeness of our president, the deli, much like the world leader, is ready to slake your thirst for democracy 24 hours a day. Also, it has cigarettes. PSFK, which took this brilliant picture, overheard some locals already talking about protesting, meaning that at least a few Brooklyn residents aren't into the idea of dropping by the local Obama for their monthly "Butttime Stories" and a fresh pack of bunion pads.
