Obama's Been in Office Long Enough. Time to Commoditize Him.


How best to commemorate the trendiest American icon today? With another American icon: the Chia pet.

"Your Chia Obama is a symbol of liberty. Opportunity. Prosperity. Hope."

Snap yours up at chiaobama.com and select fine retailers in the Midwest. You can also stimulate the Commander in Ch-Ch-Ch-Chief's hair growth -- and make a nice mantlepiece display -- by setting his Sweet! and Marvelous! Beanie Baby daughters on either side of his face. (Or not. Limelight moms pursuing "a normal life" for their kids...? --Such a buzzkill.)

Hold on a sec...
This product was actually pulled from the shelves quite a few months ago at Walgreens:

"A spokesman for Walgreens explains that store managers have the freedom to decide which products to carry in their individual stores, but company heads were not “not amused” by the decision of Chicago and Tampa store managers to carry the controversial product. We imagine those unamused heads were free of hair-like plant matter rendering them racially problematic caricatures.

Of course, company heads don’t act until someone threatens to hit them where it hurts - their wallets. The spokesperson said action was taken after they received ”some complaints from people that they thought it was racist.”
