Guess Which TV Show Just Got Its Own Line Of 'Chia' Heads?

Entertainment

"They have joined the likes of Mr. T., Homer Simpson, Scooby Doo..."

It was only a matter of time.

If you have paid attention while shopping the "as-seen-on-TV" section of your local Walmart, you probably already know that two members of "Duck Dynasty's" Robertson family have been immortalized in one of America's longest lasting pop culture phenomenons — the Chia head.

Duck Commander Willie Robertson and Uncle Si are now part of the long-standing kitschy collectible world of the Chia head. Chances are, you've even seen the TV commercial advertising the duo.

While the introduction of the Uncle Si Chia is new, almost nine months ago, A&E actually used Willie's Chia to promote the show's new season.

As stated above, the Robertsons are now among a pretty elite group of folks chosen for Chia-immortality. They have joined the likes of Mr. T., Homer Simpson, Sponge Bob, Scooby Doo and other television characters to be immortalized by Joseph Enterprises.

But the Chia treatment is not just for entertainment. It also marks historic events.

Less than three months after he was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama's "chia" became a reality.

During the 2012 election, Chia marketed both a Chia Romney and Chia Obama. The Chicago Tribune used the sales of each as part of their election prediction system.

For the record, Obama outsold Romney 69% to 29% (Romney faired only slightly better in Illinois.)

The Chia can also teach history. Chia.com now boasts a line of political Chia heads, some obvious, and some that may have you scratching your head.

We have to admit that the Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul Chias were a bit of a surprise.

Which Chia head would you like to proudly display in your home?
