Hey - I'm all for Mr. Potato Head, but can we stop the "hero" tag abuse?
2002-02-05 02:05:52 PM  
Happy birthday, ya potato head.
2002-02-05 02:06:01 PM  
Yay! Everybody fire a spud gun in the air to celebrate.
2002-02-05 02:06:09 PM  
How old is Mrs.
2002-02-05 02:07:01 PM  
Finally, a story that matters. God bless you, Mr. Potato Head.

I got him a facelift. What did you get him?

Happy birthday to the most boring toy ever invented.
2002-02-05 02:09:09 PM  
Bongo: maybe you're right about the tags. I can think of many instances besides this when a "SPUD" tag would have been very appropriate...

These things are amusing when you detonate an M-80 under them

He's such a 'chip' off the old block. I hope he doesn't get too 'baked' for his birthday.

I'm not saying that every other toy for children is brilliant but honestly, who the hell decided that kids would like to stick plastic eyeballs in a brown plastic potato. I had the crappy old one without the butt opening for storage and it bored me.

My kid loves his Mr & mrs potato heads...of course, he's 1 1/2 years old, so he'd be just as content playing with a real potato.

Has he bought a sportscar and ditched Mrs. Potatohead for a girl half his age yet?

Unfortunately Mr Potato(e)head gets involved in controversy when he is found celebrating his 50th birthday in a menage a trois with Secretary Barbie and her sister Skipper.

So Dan Quayle turns 50. What's the big deal? We're all getting older.
2002-02-05 03:28:14 PM  
Hero indeed.
2002-02-05 03:31:33 PM  
GWB is 50? Whooda thunkit.
2002-02-05 03:33:34 PM  
We have these 5 ft mr. potato heads dressed up as all differnt things all over Rhode Island.
2002-02-05 03:52:02 PM  
When are they going to come out with the X-rated version ?
Mr. Potatohead Pornstar. Just think of the endless possibilities.
2002-02-05 04:51:32 PM  
For his mid-life crisis will he borrow pieces from the Mrs. and try cross-dressing?
2002-02-05 05:50:18 PM  
I remember my Mr. PotatoHead. He died in a tragic fire aboard the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier in my parents backyard pond in '76.
2002-02-05 06:00:25 PM  
mmmm potatoes
2002-02-05 06:02:21 PM  
Not correct -- Al Snore is older than 50.
2002-02-05 06:28:46 PM  
And we are equally proud that his less gifted brother is President of the United States.
2002-02-05 06:48:32 PM  
sounds like celebration time! think I'll put a spud through
a billboard....
2002-02-05 06:53:11 PM  
Can we get fries with that?
2002-02-05 08:25:02 PM  

It's beautiful, man!
2002-02-05 10:37:09 PM  
i have a huge mister potato head poster thing on my door.
Made it in Drafting (class) last year.

oh and BTW did anyone think about what it would be like if there was a person who, rather than a head, actually had a potato? strange huh

The best Mr. Potato Head was on Toy Story 2:

"...And I'm packing you your angry eyes, just in case"

Ah, cartoon outakes.
