Chia Obama: What is it?

Order Chia Obama OnlineMaybe you are just hearing about the Chia Obama, but it has been around for quite some time now. It is a statuette of President Barack Obama with his hair replaced by a Chia plant. The idea is you start with a bald president, and as the plant grows so does his afro.

The Chia Obama Handmade Decorative Planter claims to be a collector’s item. It is sculpted to resemble the bust of President Obama, and the seeds grow curly green grass hair. The self-proclaimed collector’s item comes in two colors. The “Happy” color is brown, while the “Determined” color is blue. The grass, the makers claim, will reach full growth within 1-2 weeks.

Chia Obama: What does it work?

For many centuries figurines in the shape of humans and animals have been cherished as art objects. Beginning in the 1970s, Joseph Enterprises took this art to a new dimension with Chia figurines such as the Chia Obama. These figurines have hollow, clay bodies, a large portion of which has many small grooves in which moistened chia seeds have been placed. These moistened seeds on the Special Edition Chia Obama are bound to the clay’s surface, making this special tribute to our President an excellent conversation piece. The clever Chia Obama is easy to put together and fun to grow. It obtains full growth in just one or two weeks and can be reused indefinitely. You’ll enjoy this figurine honoring our President, and you’ll get tons of comments to boot! What makes this special offer even more attractive is that is includes a convenient drip tray, a Chia Obama Handmade Planter, the Chia Seed Packet for three plantings, and a planting and care instruction sheet. The Special Edition Chia Obama is not only a winner for your own desk or cabinet top, but it makes a great gift as well!

Chia Obama: User Feedback From Amazon.com

«I think this is hilarious. People are acting as if it’s a secret that Obama has kinky hair or that is somehow a bad thing. It’s not. Anyone offended is waaaaaaaaay too sensitive and basically has too much time on their hands. The fact that we have a black President is reason alone to lighten up. I’ve got more things to be offended about than a Chia head.»

« Purchased this as a gift, and liked it so much I probably will pick one up for myself. It doesn’t make any difference if you are a supporter of the President or not — the fact that such a product is available shows that freedom of expression is still alive. If you want to look at this as celebrating the President, great. If you want to look at this as poking fun at him, well that’s fine too. I’m grateful that I live in a country where I’m free to make that choice.»

«I got this as a gift and love it! Why is everything about race???? They made these in Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and the Statue of Liberty!!!!! No one complained about them. But make one of a black person and look out!!! It racist now!!!! Lighten up people, its a freakin chia head. I gave this as a White Elephant gift and as luck would have it, the person that got it was the one with no sense of humor!!! That made it even funnier! And it got stolen as many times as allowed. I don’t think it should be bought to be used, just to bring humor to the party!»

“My Chi-bama is awesome. I liked it so much I bought 5. When I look at it, I feel like Obama is right there with me.”

Chia Obama: Recommendation

If you are both a fan of President Obama and the original Chia pet why not grab yourself a Chia Obama? It is a pretty good likeness of our 44th president and will definitely be a talking point for any company you have over. If you do not buy into the controversy there is nothing wrong with the product, although we do not know if it is as patriotic as the manufacturer claims.
