Seriously?

The most hilarious consumer item since The Clapper is the Chia Obama.

Every time I hear the radio ad it cracks me up--and then I click on the web-site and find out I can order a "Happy Chia Obama" or a "Determined Chia Obama"--or BOTH! I could watch Determined Chia Obama's hair grow over and over on the Chia landing page for hours.

In a ludicrous development, Walgreens decided that it would be inappropriate to sell Chia Obamas because some customers complained that they are offensive. Do they not hear the patriotic music playing in the background of the ads? This is not a product that mocks our president; it is a product that celebrates the fact that we finally have a president with curly hair. Duh.

I must have one. The only question is: Determined, or Happy?

Can you guess who the only other person ever honored with a chia pet modled after them? Don't google it, just guess.

Barbara Streisand, before hair straighteners?

Bucky.

Probably Don King, Mr. T. or Bill Cosby.

Bucky--HEE!

Or maybe Pat the Androgynous Office Worker.

good guessing E! Mr. T is the only other person to have a Chia. I want to be the next one.

Alexz, Maybe it's the green hair.
