Come Back to Me, Mr. Potato Head

Looking back, I was a fool — seduced by nothing more than a sly smile beneath a rakish mustache and dark, knowing eyes always twinkling with mischief. Then one day he smiled no more, and I saw that the man I loved was nothing more than a couch potato.

You looked so dashing with your little pipe!

Happy 65th birthday, Mr. Potato Head.

    Why is there a teeny kitty on a potato?!

    Oh Kitty, haven’t we all fallen for a “Mr. Potato Head” at some point in our lives? ๐Ÿ™‚

    “I loved your sly smile โ€” and then one day it was gone.”

    It’s probably under the couch or something.

        The frown is probably behind the toybox.

    Why sleep on the cold hard ground? Get the new Tater-Pedicยฎ mattress, the most comfortable mattress in the garden!

      The “eyes” have it!

        It will put the starch back in your spine.

    I’m sure we’ve all had an ill-advised fling or two with someone who turned out to be an edible, starchy tuber.

    Though I’m more a legume man, myself.

      I go for the pumpkins. They are agourdable.

    All I can think of is a bad joke about Tater Tots, but we’re not going to to there!

    When you love something, set it free.
    If it doesn’t come back, hunt it down and KEEL IT!!!
    (or perhaps PEEL it, in this case)

    Mamma said I was a fool for selling my fuzzy mousie to that man for this magic bean. I’ll show her, it’s gonna grow into a magic beanstalk and I’m gonna ride it all the way to the clouds and get me some gold…it’ll start growing any second now…aaaany second now…
