How Ridiculous Can We Get?

A Chia pet set that consists of President Obama, Abe Lincoln, George Washington, and the Statue of Liberty has been pulled from store shelves due to controversy. It seems that the green “hair” that grows on every Chia pet (which is the reason for a Chia pet’s existence) looks like an afro when it grows on the Obama statue’s head and, therefore, considered racist by shoppers.

How many shoppers complained or who these shoppers are is not apparent in stories about this earth-shattering controversy. In today’s PC world it seems only one complaint is necessary to rain on everyone’s parade. (That, of course, would be a “Holiday” parade, not a “Christmas” parade.)

There’s very little more to say about this. It is just too stunningly absurd.
