Friday Funny



Potatoes

Once there was a girl potato and a boy potato that had eyes for each other.

After some time, they were married and they had a little sweet potato they named Yam.

Of course, they wanted the best for Yam.

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 or get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato', or end up with a bunch of Tator Tots.

Yam said not to worry. No spud would make a rotten tator out of her!

But, on the other hand, she wasn't going to stay home and be a couch potato either.

She wanted to get exercise and stay healthy so she didn't look like her shoestring cousins.

So, she started to travel.

When she went to Europe, her parents told her to watch out for the hard boiled guys from Ireland.
And, the greasy guys from France, called the French Fries.
When she went out west they told her to watch out for Indians, so she wouldn't get scalloped.

Yam promised to stay on the straight and narrow. She said she wouldn't associate with those high class 'Yukon Golds' or the ones from the other side of the tracks, who advertise their wares on the sides of trucks that say 'Frito Lay'.

Mr and Mrs Potato sent Yam to Idaho PU (that's Potato University), so that when she graduated, she would be in the chips.

In spite of all they did for her, one day Yam came home and announced she was going to marry Tom Brokaw.

Tom Brokaw!

Mr and Mrs Potato were very upset.

They told Yam she couldn't possible marry Tom Brokaw because he's just...


(are you ready for this?)


(are you sure?)
