Yes we can! Yes we can---manufacture an item of startling kitsch that falls off the edge into the world of very bad taste.
Don't bother searching your local Walgreens store for your very own collectible Chia Obama. After a week, the chain has pulled the presidential greenery from its markets in Tampa and Chicago.
It's the chia growth that's caused the trouble. It would be one thing if the verdure was all encompassing, but it's only on the scalp area and it creates a most unfortunate resemblance to an Afro.
Sure and the Chia company is proud of Mr. Obama's Irish heritage. Brown clay, to represent Kenya. Green chia growth that sort of puts one in mind of the shamrock growing all around Moneygall. Yes we can!
Joe Pedott, whose firm makes Chia Obama, claims that his clay bust is 100% patriotic. Why, he's a Republican who voted for the Democrat, he's so taken with the forty-fourth president. As to Walgreens' decision to pull the Obamas from their shelves? Mr. Pedott is flabbergasted.
If you're determined to snag one of these rarities before it's too late, you might have a bit of luck with Amazon, where everything can be found.
Yes we can!
Order now. It's the perfect gift for every Notre Dame graduate this year.
