OK, I have a TiVo, so I don't really see these things, but at my in-law's house over Thanksgiving, I noticed an incredible amount of ads for the clapper and Chia whatever. Is this normal or is it just on on the evening news in small town Oregon?

Good lord, who buys this crap?

It's normal for the holiday season. They figure a lot of people are, like me, incapable of selecting a decent gift for those they care about and will, in a fit of panic, go for anything just to have the damned decision making over with. "Hi Mom, here's a clapper. Merry Christmas." ("WHEW! Glad that's over.")

But 3 ads for Chia in one break?

If it didn't get results, they wouldn't be spending the money on the ads. Sad commentary on the general public, eh? (No, I'm not Canadian, for which most Canadians are eternally grateful.)

Yeah. I was watching with my mother-in-law, and ridiculing them. She agreed-until the one for the Chia herb garden came on. Sigh.

c-c-c-cilantro!

p-p-p-parsley!

Ch-ch-ch-Chia Herb Garden!

Ken, you'll be happy to know that there are papers, film, and other original materials regarding the man responsible for both the Chia and the Clapper available for your perusal at the Smithsonian.

Scroll down for the biography of this great American, Joseph Pedott. Many answers await you, especially as to why his products are so big on the left coast. Turns out he's a native San Franciscan!
