Yesterday I was shopping at an Oneonta retailer and came across something that stopped me in my tracks and made me laugh out loud: "Duck Dynasty Chia Pets".  My first thought was, "Are you serious?!!"  How far are they going to take this Chia Pet thing?  Apparently there are no limits when it comes to the Chia phenomenon.

My question is, who buys these?  I would have bought one on a lark as a gag gift but after checking out the price tag, I thought better of it.  It's NOT cheap thrill.  The Duck Dynasty Chia is $19.99!  Too much money for a gag gift in my opinion.

Below is a commercial dating back to 1984 featuring the original Chia Pet which was created in 1977.  I remember this, do you?
