So, yes, President Obama has had some troubles lately. The debate over health care reform has been bitter and divisive, and the conflict he inherited in Afghanistan looks set to become a historic quagmire. But in one way, at least, Obama already ranks up there with our greatest and most beloved presidents: Like Abe Lincoln and Geo. Washington, he is now a Chia pet.


For a fun activity, try repeating “Barack Obama Chia Pet” to yourself nine or ten times. Or maybe sing it aloud to the tune of “Lovely Rita, Meter Maid.” Don’t do this in a crowded office, though, or you’ll make a spectacle of yourself.
