Obama Chi-Chi-Chi Chia Pet
Obama Chia Pet yanked from some stores
If you were hoping to get your "Chia Obama" from Walgreens stores in Tampa or Chicago, you better think again. Stores in those two cities have yanked the pet plant with a likeness of the president because some shoppers found this Chia Pet racist, according to The Huffington Post.
We are not going to wade into the is-it-or-isn't-it racist debate, but it did surprise us when we asked whether an Obama dog toy was offensive that no one said yes. Is a plant modeled after the commander in chief more degrading than a dog chew toy?
