With apologies for the slew of posts about Walgreens, I wanted to check something with you. Does it seem reasonable that Andre Champagne is $5.99 and a Whitman’s Sampler is $4.99, but that a Chia Pet is $15.99?!? And, is that with or without the 50% sale?

    More than anything, this is proof that Christmas has become too commercialized. They are literally selling Christmas, and at 50% off!!

    I think the bigger and more pertinent question is why are chia pets still being sold and not outlawed in hindsight via the Khitomer Accord

    I have to admit that I love the concept of Chia Pets, but only because of that awesome Pinky and the Brain episode where they create “Chia World” to drawn the citizens of earth away from the real planet so they can take over.

    Brilliant stuff.

    How does Walgreens decide which product go on the sign? Are chia pets really best selling products?

    Those Chia’s are hard difficult to find and it’s really hard to get them to stand still long enough to be freeze dried.

    @forkboy, As in the agreement between the Klingon Empire and the United Federation of Planets?

    @Jordan Yes. Exactly. I’m sure it’s in there somewhere…

    I’ve heard chia is actually very healthy. Go figure.
