The Potato Head Family

Well, A Girl Potato and Boy Potato had Eyes for each other.  They finally they got married, and had a little sweet potato, which they called 'Yam'.

Of course, they wanted the best for Yam.  So when it was time, they told her about the facts of life.

They warned her about going out and getting half-baked, so she wouldn't get accidentally mashed, and get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato,'
and end up with a bunch of Tater Tots.

Yam said not to worry; no Spud
would get her into the sack and make a rotten potato out of her!  But on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and become a Couch Potato either.

Instead, she promised she would get plenty of exercise
so as not to be skinny like her Shoestring Cousins.

When she went off to see the
world, Mr. And Mrs. Potato told Yam to watch out for the hard-boiled guys from Ireland and the greasy guys from France who called themselves French Fries.  She was also cautioned, when she went out West, to watch out for the Indians so she wouldn't get scalloped.

Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn't associate with the high class Yukon Gold’s, or the ones from the other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on all the trucks that say, 'Frito Lay.'

Mr. And Mrs. Potato sent Yam
to Idaho P.U. (that's Potato University) so that when she graduated she'd really be in the Chips.

But in spite of all they did for her, one-day Yam came home and announced she was going to marry Tony Kornheiser.

Tony Kornheiser??!!??

Mr. and Mrs. Potato were very upset.  They told Yam she couldn't possibly marry Tony Kornheiser because he's just.......

Are you ready for this?

Unless Mr. Potato Head is anatomically correct, (and I checked) Mrs. Potato Head has been spudding around.
