If I see one more Chia Pet commercial I'm going ballistic. I swear there is one every commercial break. And if not the pet then the Chia Herb Garden or Chia Cat Grass. Personally I love how they show the cat so innocently sniffing the Chia Cat Grass. The cats I used to own would have knocked it over and destroyed the plant in their attempts to get a good sniff of that grass. I just don't see how they can possibly sell enough Chia crap to afford all of these mind numbing commercials. I mean do people really buy these for themselves or others as the manufacturer's so boldly claim? Or has the economic crisis deflated the cost of advertising time so much that we now get to listen to "Ch...ch...ch...chia" twenty times a day? For God's sake it's a clay animal that you plan seeds on!
I'd rather watch no-name colleges advertise their opportunities to become certified in TV/VCR repair. It almost makes me miss political campaign commercials. Almost.
