Chia Obama Pulled From Walgreens Shelves

Sorry, folks, you’ll have to go elsewhere than Walgreens to purchase your “Chia Obamas,” as headquarters has asked local stores to remove the item, saying they felt it was bad for their corporate image. This perhaps marks the first time anyone has said, yeah, that’s probably not a good way to commodify the Barackster. The Chia Obama comes in two formats, “Happy Chia Obama,” and “Determined Chia Obama,” sporting either a smile, or steely resolve, respectively.
