I hate to spoil it for all you folks on my Christmas list, but I can’t wait to share what I’m getting everyone for Christmas. I have considered in the past making a pact with myself to purchase every single Christmas gift at convenience stores. I’m not doing that this year, maybe next year (I can see you squirming with excitement already).
However, I have found the perfect gift for every single person on my list. From plant lovers to patriots, I’ve got you covered.
It’s the Obama Chia Pet from the Proud to be American Chia series.
Or maybe you’d rather have the Statue of Liberty Chia with the “ever-glowing flame.”
Feeling a bit more revolutionary, there’s the George Washington Chia.
There’s also an Abraham Lincoln Chia edition, but I can’t understand why they didn’t manufacture it where Lincoln’s beard will also grow green plants. Only his hair grows. Shouldn’t Abe be wearing a stovepipe hat to cover his hair, leaving his chin as the best spot for luxurious growing greenery?

Business in the front and party in the back.
Who knew you could buy an air freshener that captured the essence that is the 80s hairstyle?
Apparently you can.
My guess is it smells a whole lot like Aqua Net.
And what does Bambi have to do with this hair-smelling piece of cardboard?
Via Fail Blog.
For more mullet links, it’s Squirrel Mullet Mania.

Is it just me or does Mama have a little bit of an Elvis snarl and some hound dog sideburns? All topped off by Priscilla’s Aqua-Netted hair-spectacular.
Ahhh, the 70s.
And if I’m not mistaken the kid in this pic fell into the chocolate river and went on to be sucked up into the Fudge Room in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Poor Augustus Gloop.
I found this pic over at Gelmania, but if you want to see plenty more of the same ilk, don’t forget to stop by Awkward Family Photos. Oy!

I know it’s a couple of days after the fact of Obama replacing Bush, but I just came across these ads that ran.
One is for a hair removal product and the other promotes an external power source.

I was perusing the new White House web site and opted to take a gander at all 44 of our presidents in close-up form.
Amongst all the mutton chops, mustaches and beards, the facial hair that really drew my attention belonged to our 25th president.
What is up with William McKinley’s eyebrows?

Congratulations to the Tampa Bay Rays, American League Champs and World Series bound!!
I’m just feeling groovy this morning after watching the Tampa Bay Rays hold off the BoSox to earn a trip to the World Series in a worst-to-first season.
I’ve kept an eye on this talented bunch for a couple of seasons, using several of their players on my fantasy baseball team. Upton, Longoria, Garza, Price. Those are
names you’ll be hearing about for several years to come.
They’ve got a forward thinking manager who looks pretty cool with those glasses and that silver fauxhawk.
The Phillies won’t be an easy team for them to roll through, but the Rays do have homefield advantage and some fans showing up to make an impact (More COWBELL!!).
The boys from the City of Brotherly Love do have the overall edge in experience, but I’m not counting out the Rays.
And while we’re talking baseball, let’s give a shout out to the curse of the Billy Goat and 100 years of Cubs futility! Hip Hip Hooray to the losers in Wrigley. No Bartman was needed to down the lovable losers, just some Dodger blue and Manny being Manny.
Hey, I’m a Cardinals fan. I’ve got to throw a jab when I get a chance.

I’m by no means a sci fi Star Trek geek, but it never fails that an episode of the space travel TV show makes me giggle at least twice.
One of those giggles is usually because Captain Kirk is having some green alien babe with an intricate beehive, twirly hairdo trying to get into his tight black uniform pants.
It happens at least every other episode.
If you’re curious about James T’s space nooky, PopFi has several links that have the lowdown on the Captain’s insatiable appetites.
I do know one thing, after seeing the pic above, I’ll never question his manhood.
