Would You Like To Buy This?

From the makers of Chia pets comes this new product: Chia Obama. This product, like all similar products, involves the sprouting of green plant life on the top to look like the hair of the, um, living species it is trying to, um, imitate.

Chia Obama comes in two varieties: Happy Chia Obama and Determined Chia Obama (I would describe this second product as more "Philosophical" than "Determined," but perhaps that is why I am not in marketing?). You should check out the website just to see the little presentation by the salesman.

Is it a bit disrespectful? Yes. Did President Obama approve it? I have my doubts. Is it amusing in an odd little sort of way? Somehow, yes...
