Hail to the Ch-Ch-Ch-Chief

Over the weekend, I saw a commercial for this, erm, delightful souvenir: Chia Obama. It’s a clay bust of the President and it happens to look nothing like him, though it does grow fluffy green hair. Just like the President. (“Can you grow one?” asks the website. “YES YOU CAN!”) It also comes with its very own drip tray.

Back in April, it was decried as racist and pulled from drugstore shelves in Chicago and Tampa, but you can still find it on hard-to-believe infomercials as well as Drugstore.com and Amazon, which, oddly offers used models. I wish I had known about this before the start of the wedding season.
