Chia Obama

#101625 2 years, 10 months ago
So I turn the channel to Jimmy Fallon and I hear.

"Introducing (chi-chi-chi-chia) Chia Obama. This Chia Obama is a special edition and a collectors item. Just spread the seeds, water, and watch it grow. Your Chia Obama is a symbol of liberty, opportunity, prosperity and hope. Chia Obama makes the statement: I'm proud to be an American. Display it on your desk, in your home, at your school. Own a piece of Americana. Show pride and support with Chia Obama (chi-chi-chi-chia). Chia Obama makes a great gift.

Funny bit right? I thought so.

But it was an actual commercial. 19.95 + $7.95 shipping and handling.

You can also get a Chia George Washington, Chia Abe Lincoln, and Chia Statue of Liberty.

Bet that Chia Obama sells well down south and among the tea party crowd.

Not trying to start something, TS; just wanted to say a few things about "down south."
Lots of mighty fine folks in these parts. And, as a rule, manners and common courtesy mean something down here.
And, I'll tell you... if a local, black man has his truck break down on a back country road, just as often as not, it'll be a white, good ol' boy who'll stop to help him.
Are there hard-core racists down here? Well, you betcha. Just like anywhere else. But the 1850s are pretty much history now.

I get your point. They are all over. Unfair of me to stereotype. Just making an obvious implication at who this product is targeted to, despite the over the top patriotism.

I didn't think you were being mean-spirited or judgmental, TS. Hope I didn't give that impression.
But even though I wasn't born in the south (although my wife was), I've really been amazed at what it's like down here. People -- all kinds -- are really, really cool. Seems as if they know how to get along. Which is, sadly, more than I can say about some places I've lived.
But anyway, thanks for the post! Somehow, for me anyway, Chia Pets seem to manage to provide a good laugh every year for as long as I can recall.
