So, last night, oldest daughter and I are sitting there watching the news and I hear the familiar tune, "Ch Ch Ch Chia" blaring from the TV. I block it out as I've always done it the past, only to realize somewhere in the dark recesses of my brain that the commercial is not for the vast array of available Chia Pets....it's for....get this....an Omega 3 supplement. What??? Well, I had to rewind it and watch the commecial to let it fully sink in that the people who are selling this
Okay, I have to confess, I totally missed the Chia Mr. T experience...
what rock was I living under???
and even this....
Disclaimer: I'm not endorsing any particular political party here, but I mean, every president should be enshrined in the form of a Chia, don't you think???
Seriously....the people who have brought us Ch Ch Ch Chia Pets now want us to INGEST these seeds for our health? How can this be?????
I'm quite sure a billion dollars have been spent on scientific research and that they're perfectly healthy and good for you (of course, I googled Chia seeds and apparently they are quite good for you...even Dr. Oz says so...and if Dr. Oz says it, then...), but I just can't muster the courage to swallow anything that is even remotely associated with the above images and/or has a catchy jingle that goes along with it. Sorry, just can't do it. Maybe another brand....if it's a miracle supplement...and it'll make me 20 lbs. lighter and 20 years younger. Heck, if it promised that, I'd even sport the green vegetation hair! In the meantime....Ch Ch Ch Chia.....
The opinions expressed herein represent my own....they may be crazy, but they're mine. Also, I have not been paid for this "endorsement"...seriously.
