50 year old potato...mmmmmmmmm...
2002-02-27 12:09:53 PM  
He must have at least 125 eyes by now.

Sucks to be that reporter. Not winning a Pullitzer anytime soon with stories like that.

Once I found a 50-year old potato under my stove. It was all sprouted and struggling to find the solace of fresh dirt, but unfortunately the only thing under my stove were crumbs and bugs. My 50-year old potato didn't have a face or feet, which I'm sure is the reason for it's untimely demise. Long live the Head of Mr Potato!

I hear he has the same heroin dealer as Keith Richards.
And isn't Mr. Potatohead engaged to Phyllis Diller?
2002-02-27 12:12:39 PM

2002-02-27 12:15:23 PM  
I wonder if Mr. Potato Head gets head.
2002-02-27 12:16:03 PM  
Chelsea Clinton's birthday is today too. Coincidence? I think not.

Is it just me, or have their been more re-run stories than usual lately?
2002-02-27 12:21:07 PM  
A little head from a 50 year-old never hurt anyone. How old is the Mrs?

This does make me recall a banner I saw in the grocery store produce section several years ago, and I'm still sorry I didn't beg them to let me have the thing when their promotion was over... after all, who wouldn't want a giant banner in their hanging in their house reading:


a thing of beauty and wonder...

Happy birthday to a true American icon. What kid hasn't played with Mr. Potatohead? I remember when his eyebrows and mustache were made of felt. 'Course, I had a pet stegosaur too.

Happy Birthday Alexandra

I remember 29. Those were the days.
2002-02-27 12:47:43 PM  
Can anyone please tell me what the appeal of this thing is/ was! It ranks right up there on the fun-o-meter with a pet rock.
2002-02-27 12:49:42 PM  
Here you go, Mr. Potato Head. You've earned it.

When did Mr. Potato Head quit smoking?

He used to smoke a pipe in the good old days before PC.
2002-02-27 01:03:42 PM  
Must be a very slow news day.
2002-02-27 01:07:17 PM  
Why, Dr. Tad, it's so obvious! Mr. Potatohead is great for shoving up Michael Moore's ass in prison. When your convict friends get through, of course...
2002-02-27 01:09:56 PM  
Hats off to ya!
