I’m not sure how to feel about this. Apparently, you can now buy an Obama Chia Pet. Lest you think this is frivolous, note that this model explicitly says “Determined Pose”. Although I cannot find any other poses for sale, you have to admit, for a terra cotta statue with green grassy hair, he looks pretty darned determined.
Part of me wonders if this might be a bit racist, but they also sell a Homer Simpson Chia, so the organic hair is not exclusively for Afros. Heck, there’s even a Chia Hippo, which seems a little counter intuitive given the smooth skinned nature of those beasts.
But one thing remains clear. Bush didn’t have a Chia. (And now that I think of it, if you were going to do a Presidential Chia, who better than a guy named “Bush?”) Surely, this is change we can believe in.
