An Obama Chia Pet! What’s next?
Last week it was Obama Fried Chicken. This week it’s an Obama Chia Pet. When will it end?

Yes you can,” says the announcer on a cheesy video on the company’s web site.

You can buy the “Determined Chia Obama pose” with the serious looking president or the more racially stereotypical “Happy Chia Obama pose” directly from the company’s web site. And the company says it only takes 1-2 weeks to reach full growth.

But not everybody is happy about the pets.

The products were pulled from Walgreens shelves in Chicago and Tampa after customers complained that it was racist, but the Chia company says it’s pushing ahead with plans to introduce the products in drugstores in New York City. It’s not clear yet if they’ll try to sell them in Harlem.
