Chia Obama

My brother, being older and thus infinitely wiser than I, somehow knows exactly what to give me for holidays? Like one time he got me tickets to a David Bowie concert, which was pretty genius. Oh, and there was the time he gave me a Yuengling on my birthday, though that wasn't strictly a gift. And then last Christmas he reached the pinnacle of his genius, maybe with a little help from his wife: he gave me an Obama Chia Pet.

If that doesn't make you want to run out and buy one for yourself right now, I don't know what will.

Unfortunately, since I have no horticultural skills whatsoever, Chia Obama is not flourishing under my guidance. He has a bald spot, and possibly a wasting disease, but he amuses me, so I think I'll let him stick around. Besides, Chia Obama comes with enough seeds for three plantings, so if I fail this time, I can always try again. Wouldn't you like to try it out, too?

Buy through Chia for $19.95.
