You probably know the Chia pet — that easy-to-do, watch-it-grow decorative planter.

But now, Joseph Enterprises, maker of that American kitsch, is cashing in on President Obama — with a Special Edition Chia Obama.

For $20 you can watch an Obama bust sprout a thick head of Chia.

At least one retailer, Walgreens, has yanked it from the shelves for being "offensive."

Tonight, we ask you quite simply: Do you think Chia Obama is offensive, patriotic or just plain weird?

Tell us what you think.
