Obama Chia Head

4/8/2009 Update:

The P.C. police roll in…

Commenter #1 was correct – this harmeless Obama Chia Head is now a point of controversy – as some Walgreens stores have begun pulling them because they’re “offensive.”

1/26/2009:
Looking to capitalize on the Obama Revolution, Chia now has a Barack Obama head you can grow “hair” on.

For starters, it looks a bit creepy! And maybe this would have been a better idea in the 1970’s or something, no? Whaaaaat’s happening, Duane?

Somehow over the prior 8 years I missed Chia Corp.’s likeness of former President B*sh climbing up a banana tree to grasp the tasty, dangling fruit… (the sprouts are the banana leaves).[/quote]
Nobody liked Bush. Why make a product no one would buy?

I agree with Brady – questionable timing – making a product with the president’s likeness – but no more questionable than the “Heirloom Plates” I see on TV being sold w/his likeness or any number of other knickknacks that no one needs. :lol:[/quote]

true true. i only question it being the current head of our state. it seems kinda ludicrous to have a chia pet of our president, but maybe we’re in the minority? only sales figures will tell…..[/quote]

C’mon. You know you want a commemorative coin! :mrgreen:[/quote]
I’ll just wait for the oil painting of the entire family. . .or perhaps a bust for my mantle.

Speaking of ludicrous, a chia head of T-T-T-Tyson would make a great gift.
