If you can make it, vendors can sell it...and Obamafy it.

You can't even imagine all the different products vendors were selling on inauguration week along the streets of DC. For starters, there were the classic buttons, t-shirts, posters, and hats. But those don't even touch upon the more absurd products I saw being sold among the streets. There were vendors peddling Obama perfume body spray (with catchy slogans like "I smell change"), Obama boas, Obama condoms, Obama puppets (creepy), Obama bling, Obama sandwhiches, and Obama dolls among other Obamarific goods. What craziness.

We were joking that next they were going to sell Obama Chia Pets. But, oh wait, they actually do!


  1. That is just too awesome....I want to get one for my parents haha. Or at least at work. Does it need sunlight? My office only has light bulb light...

  2. Oh my gosh! I can't believe that have Chia Pets for Obama!

  3. No really. You don't want one.
    It's disturbing. Very disturbing.
