Okay. Okay people. Can someone please tell me when it became trendy to eat chia seeds? They are everywhere – in bars, in cereal, in puddings, in smoothies. I know, I get it, they have omega-3 fatty acids. Woo. But am I the only one who remembers CHIA PETS? Ahhh those sweet, lovable, afro sporting companions of my youth. So what happens to our beloved chia pets when all the chia seeds are being used as, as what… FOOD? For human HEALTH? Unacceptable. Every time you consume a chia seed some chia pet out there loses his soul (read: fake plant hair). How can you live with that? How can you sleep at night? WHAT HAVE WE BECOME?!?
With this in mind i give you number three of my NPDP:BWIBB series (New Product Development Poetry: Beautiful Writings Inspired by Bullshit and Boredom). It’s a dark day in history.
