Does anyone else think this seems like a really bad joke?

  2. I thought it was a good idea. Richard Simmons and Don King Chia pets just get boring after a while.

  8. Courtney: The new Twilight? Hahahaha. :) That made my day.

    Surge: I'm in agreement. Let's all laugh really loud together and Chia will get the point.

    Sarah: I feel the same way. ;)

    Emma: When I saw it for the first time I could not stop laughing. My Dad yelled in from the other room, "Are they playing the Obama plant thing again?"

    Apparently he found it funny too. :)

  9. Ok no lie, At Barnes and Nobel they had Barack and Michelle Obama Paper Dolls.

    so weird.

  10. Catherine: That's a little crazy! I mean, I'm all for patriotism and we all know I voted for Obama...but come on. Paper dolls and Chia Pets? This is a bit much.

  11. This just shows how much the world loves Obama. What has Obama done to earn his head as a chia? Better question, What did Obama do to earn a Nobel Peace Prize? What is with everyone's love for this man? What has he done? (and bring "hope" is not an answer)

  12. That does seem like a bad joke if you ask me. Maybe because it's just not politically correct. But it is kind of funny...

  13. Jon, when you said you were going to comment I should have known it would only be to bash Obama into smithereens.

    Everyone, please excuse Jon. He can't help his insanely conservative views...it's kind of part of his DNA. Lol.

    Megan: I thought it was funny too. Kind of disrespectful, but definitely funny. :)

  14. i think this is awful... the guy is already unpopular at the moment... this probably won't be helping him! haha

  15. Okay, that's just weird!! ;)

    Glad you stopped by my blog, and so glad to have a new follower! I can't wait to read more of your blog.

  16. Ok, I admit, I laughed when I saw this.

    "This is a sign of liberty, integrity, hope," and all that stuff. HELLO? It's freakin' Obama with an afro! Ohmygosh.

  17. I saw this on tv a few weeks ago. At first I laughed but now...not so much.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ryan: Those were my thoughts EXACTLY. Lol.

    John and Steph: You're welcome. Your blog is adorable! Thanks for stopping by mine, too. :)

    Crazy Shenanigans: I'm hoping this can be taken lightly and not as a blatant show of disrespect. If the latter, things could get ugly for Chia. Then again, maybe not. I mean, we do live in America so that we'll have the right to make whatever the heck kind of Chia we want, right?

    I don't know. I have such conflicting feelings about this... I'd just meant for this to be a funny post, but now I'm kind of questioning that...

  19. The word that comes to mind for me is "hideous" but I personally don't like Chias in the first place. Some of the comments cracked me up though so this post is a win for me!

    Jon, don't sweat it! I have quite a few rather conservative views myself so I'll keep ya company on the conservative couch. To be fair though I can't resist saying that "bring hope" IS an answer it's just not one that you like! But I think it's a horribly inadequate answer myself so I'm back on your side again lol

    If nothing else Obama is shaking things up BIG TIME and oh boy, do I think that's something this country has been needing! Let's just hope it's not too much (or too little) shaking!

  20. Clandestiny: I'm glad there's someone on Jon's side of the fence to keep him company. ;)

  21. i don't even know what to say about that.

    seriously.

  22. Tia: Haha. That's okay. It is a bit much to process. ;)

    Thanks so much for stopping by. :)

  23. I think it's not funny. If anyone thinks this is funny they need to think agen cuz in my opinion it's offensive.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yollie27, I can respect that.

    In fact, I think it's a little bit offensive too. That's why I referred to it as a "bad joke." It's one that probably started as something that would be a funny idea, and grew into an actual product.

    I'm sorry if my post offends you, but think of this another way: We can either chuckle a little and move on, or spend a lot of time on this, giving Chia the spotlight they're craving. We, the American citizens, have the power to decide whether this becomes offensive, or a compliment. We could choose to make it a symbol of how loved our new president is. :)

    Also, as Americans, we have the right to decide for ourselves how to feel about issues like this. Please respect that right, and don't be rude to other readers.

    Thanks for your input. :) I always like to hear the varied responsed from my readers.
