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 Homer Simpson
Chia Sponge Bob
*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withdrawn Chia Obama from its stores.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.)
