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

And finally they got married, and had a little sweet
Potato, which they

Of course, they wanted the best for Yam.

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,

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 wouldn't 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!







Thanks Hal ... I think.


  1. Curmudgeon, you are as you should be.

  2. Groan...
    I'm going back to bed.

  3. Bwahahahahahahaha. I can't believe I didn't see that coming. I've not had coffee yet. I'm going to fix that now.

    Have a fabulous day Odie. ☺

  4. Didn't see that coming. Only tatter joke I know is basically a one-liner. "Leroy, get yourself out of that tatter patch don't you know them tatters got eyss"! It really sucks.

  5. Ron, it took a brave man to tell that one.

  6. Good Tatter story!
    Like the new scheme.

  7. Brighid, you show good taste in both ...


Put it here ... I can't wait to read it. I have the Captcha turned OFF but blogger insists it be there. You should be able to bypass it.
