This was a JOTD in the past but it's worth reheating......



A Girl Potato and Boy Potato had eyes for each other,

And finally they got married, and had a

little sweet Potato,which they

Called 'Yam.'

Of course, they wanted the best for


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, and

Get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato,' and

End up with a bunch of tater tots

Yam said not to worry, no Spud would get Her into the sack and make a rotten potato out of her! But on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and become a Couch Potato either.

She would get plenty of exercise so as

not to be skinny like her shoestring cousins.

When she went off to Europe,
Mr. And Mrs. Potato told Yam
To watch out

For the hard-boiled guys from Ireland and the greasy guys from France called the French fries. And when she

went out West, to Watch out for the Indians so she wouldn't get scalloped...

Yam said she would stay on the

straight and Narrow and would not

associate with

Those high class Yukon Golds, or the ones from the other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on all The trucks that say,

'Frito Lay.'

Mr. And Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P.U. (that's Potato University ) so that when she graduated she'd really be in the Chips.

But 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
Possibly marry Tom Brokaw because he's just......

Are you

Ready for this?


You sure?


Here it is!

With all of Her travel and schooling, I am guessing Mom and Dad were not Po-Taters.

By sheltering her they were obvious trying to keep her a distant speck-tater and for safety sake encouraging her in her behavior to be merely a hez-a-tater. Of course the parent's meant well as illustrated by trying to encourage keeping her eye's peeled and not being a fight agi-a-tater keeping her from harm and lessening any possibility of serious harm causing her to be a vegetable for life.
