Mr. & Mrs. Potato

You know that all potatoes have eyes.  Well, Mr. and
Mrs.Potato had eyes for each other and they finally got
married and had a little one --- a real SWEET POTATO whom
they called "YAM".  They wanted the best for little Yam,
telling her all about the facts of life.  They warned her

She said not to worry -- no Mr. McSpud would get her in
the sack and make a Rotten Potato out of her!  But she
wouldn't stay home and become a Couch Potato either.

She would get plenty of food and exercise so as not to be
skinny like her Shoestring cousins.

Mr. and Mrs. Potato even told her about going off to Europe
and to watch out for the Hard Boiled guys from Ireland and

They also said she should watch out for the Indians when 
going out west because she could get Scalloped.  She told 
them she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn't 
associate with those high class Blue Belles or the ones from 
the other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on all 
the trucks you see around town that say Frito-Lay.

Mr. & Mrs. Potato wanted the best for Yam, so they sent her
to "Idaho P.U." -- that's Potato University -- where the Big
Potatoes come from and when she graduated, she'd really be
in the Chips.  But one day she came home and said she was 
going to marry news anchorman, Walter Cronkite.

Mr. and Mrs. Potato were very upset and said she couldn't
marry him because he's just a------
