Is Chia Obama a tribute, satire or just really freakin’ weird?

What better way to mark our new president’s inauguration than to mush some plant seeds into a terra cotta bust that resembles him — sort of, but not really? Yes, thanks to the invisible hand of the market place we now have CHIA OBAMA. You can choose whether to mush those seeds into a Mr. Obama who looks either

HAPPY

or

DETERMINED

I want a version that shows the look on the president’s face when he finds out he’s tried to hire yet another rich white person who can’t figure out how to pay their taxes.

And if the Obama versions don’t sell — the company can always rebrand them as Chia Malcolm Gladwell:
