Incredible Piece of Obama Memorabilia...Cancelled

There is a medium sized American industry dedicated to collectibles bearing likenesses of Presidential visages. Such items are typically manufactured in lots of 5000 and advertised in word search puzzle anthologies and coupon sections of the Community Press. Said collectibles are generally inoffensive. One notable exception is the Barack Obama chia pet, recently pulled from CVS pharmacies due to customer complaints. I suppose it is offensive because: (a) Barack Obama is a Muslim, (b) Barack Obama is a prophet (c) Muslims don't like visual representations of their prophets.

Note: I was just inspired to begin writing my Christmas list.
