Gravy for the nashed potatoes?
2002-03-18 06:32:10 PM  
Maybe they just wanted french fries

It can hardly be considered a Mr. Potato Head if dismemberment is a BAD thing. That's what Potato Heads DO.

2002-03-18 06:33:40 PM  
That thing IS hidious! Who thought that thing was even worth wonder they gave it to their sister city...

Bloody hooligans!!!

Is NOTHING sacred anymore ?!
2002-03-18 06:35:22 PM  
it was probably giving the kids nightmares
2002-03-18 06:36:20 PM  
Proving once again that childhood violence is done in fun. I too remember joyfully removing Mr. Potato Head's arms and hats and legs and eyes and nose and mouth and rearranging his face.
2002-03-18 06:38:15 PM  
Ok, I admit I started the rumor that it ate children
2002-03-18 06:38:57 PM  
So he was chipped?
2002-03-18 06:39:39 PM  
Another reason I support the death penalty
2002-03-18 06:42:32 PM  
dude, this is pretty farked up right here.
2002-03-18 06:42:38 PM  
Bangers and Mash! Heavy on the mash!

"7-foot fiberglass statue had one of its arms ripped off and its hat broken in the attack last week"

Just flip him over and pull another set of arms out of his butt
2002-03-18 06:48:48 PM  
they gave him a fat lip too.
2002-03-18 06:49:32 PM  
I don't blame the vandals, that thing is pretty ugly.
2002-03-18 06:54:35 PM  
Those kids must have been subjected to playing way too many dodgeball games in PE class.
2002-03-18 06:54:46 PM  
"now stands outside the Safeway supermarket in Belper, 130 miles north of London."

They have Safeways in England????

Those ungrateful British bastards ... we give them a giant Mr. Potato(e) head and they go and tear the arms off it and want to send it back ... and to think we pulled their cans out of the fire back in WW2 ...
2002-03-18 06:56:44 PM  
Those vicious ungrateful little Britt Bratts!
2002-03-18 07:03:12 PM  
Hmm...From the world news headlines sidebar...Good to see they just focus on the important news.

*Israel pulls out of Bethlehem

*Giant Mr. Potato Head, gift from Pawtucket, R.I., vandalized in attack

*Britain may ban hunting with hounds

The French gave us the Statue of Liberty, and this is what we give as a gift to the Brits?
2002-03-18 07:07:48 PM  
That thing doesn't even look like a Mr. Potato Head. It looks more like Mr. Pilgrim Egg.
2002-03-18 07:09:30 PM  
Kupek shoots . . he scores!
2002-03-18 07:12:05 PM  
God I hope they get those farking little bastards.
2002-03-18 07:14:22 PM  
How many times can they call it a "an attack", or a "Vicious" attack? People can attack people, animals can attack, but stop putting human characteristics to inanimate objects pleeeaaaseee. It was vandalized, that is why they made that word up, to describe when somebody damages a non-living object.

Stupid media.
2002-03-18 07:16:28 PM  
I thought Potato Heads were an endangered species.

Those kids should get the DEATH PENALTY.

This cruel indifference and depravity should not go unrewarded er.. unpunished.
2002-03-18 07:20:05 PM  
This disturbing rise in "human on tuber" violence must be stemmed!
2002-03-18 07:21:00 PM  
I wish I was party to that!!!
2002-03-18 07:26:11 PM  
If I had nothing to watch except the BBC, I might go on a murderous rampage too...

Either that, or I'd watch a lot of porn.
2002-03-18 07:33:33 PM  
Either that, or I'd watch a lot of porn.

You talk as if that would be some major life change.
2002-03-18 07:36:11 PM  
Has there ever been a Mr. Potato head picture for Photoshop?
I think we need that. Just think of all the parts you could cut and paste onto other people.
2002-03-18 07:37:32 PM  
BBC or porn? C'mon, am I the only one that watches Weakest Link, tackle in hand?
2002-03-18 07:41:11 PM  
How long before they open a Belper chapter of CAVPHA (Citizens Against Vicious Potato Head Attacks)?
2002-03-18 07:43:19 PM  
Just one more instance of anti-Irish activity on the part of the English!
2002-03-18 07:44:56 PM  

2002-03-18 07:46:08 PM  
The tuberists have already won!
2002-03-18 07:51:50 PM  
Am I the only onee who sees that this is the chupacabra? It obviously met its match in those school children. Those things should be outlawed.
2002-03-18 08:18:16 PM  
stolen from drudgereport...uninspired twat.
2002-03-18 08:35:06 PM  
geez... doesn't even look like him...

I say ... take your lips off and kiss .. the city goodbye

I love Toy Story
2002-03-18 08:37:20 PM  
That thing looks like an albino California Raisin.
2002-03-18 09:09:14 PM  
Belper.........sister city of Pawtucket. Was there more to this story?

Mr. PotatoeHead is forced into the Witness Protection Progam.

Pawtucket has good nudie bars. Does Belper? Enquiring minds want to know...
2002-03-18 09:40:02 PM  
I hear Ted Bundy did the same thing when he was a kid...hope they catch those little rascals.
2002-03-18 09:51:10 PM  
Too bad American tourists (Mr. Potatohead = fat, bad mannered, etc.) are not mishandled in the same way...
2002-03-18 09:55:08 PM  
"Damn kids and their music"

A cookie to whoever names that reference (excluding YugoFark and Deef, sorry)
2002-03-18 10:17:33 PM  
Wonder Jew do you know my dad... he says that a lot
