THE WORST CHRISTMAS GIFT

. . . has to be the Chia Pet planters.
(They're so bad, they're good!)

Just fill these terracotta planters with water,
apply chia seeds in the grooves,
and 1-2 weeks later seeds grow into fur or hair.

They're only sold at Christmas time.
They were first introduced in 1980,
sold primarily at drug chain stores.
Combined sales are 1-million planters.
Believe it or not, over 1-million Chia Pet
planters are sold annually.

The popular Chia Pet characters this year are:

Chia Guy
Chia Homer Simpson
Chia Scooby-Doo
Chia Sponge Bob
Chia Po
Chia Taz
Chia Obama*

*Walgreens National Drug Chain has since
withdrawn Chia Obama from its stores.
"Too political," the store manager said.

(I might have to figure out who gets a Chia Pet
for Christmas this year.
Homer Simpson, for sure.)

  1. Personnellement, je ne pense pas que ce soit du meilleur goût, mais il fallait les montrer pour savoir que tout existe !
