News, but not the serious kind

And the next Angelina Jolie is…

August 11, 2010

USA/

Blog Guy, I read your item on Angelina Jolie this week, and it made me wonder who the next “perfect” woman will be.

JAPAN/If you look at Angelina’s sensuous, supple lips, big eyes, mannish hands, and that smile that says, “I could kill you with a pencil,” and put them all together, who do we have?

Good question. Only one other actress has all that.

You mean?

Yes, it’s Mrs. Potato Head’s moment to shine. She is one hot potato!

That’s amazing, Blog Guy! The resemblance is uncanny! I guess that’s why you make the medium-size bucks!

Exactly. I expect Mrs. Potato Head to make her leap to the Jolie level very soon. First, look for her to adopt some Tater Tots.

It’s obvious. After that, it’s “Oh Brad, you want fries with that?”

Is it wrong that I wonder what variety of potato Mrs Potato Head is?

That Mrs. Potato Head! Always a step ahead of the fashionistas – there she is sporting that sparkly lip gloss!

Kudos to Mr. Potato Head! Stuck by his glamorous wife all these years, always nice to the press. Why just look at those big smiles as they stand arm in arm. They hash out all their differences in private…

Yes Onedoor, but it helps that she never lost her apeel…

Hash! That’s a good one! As a kid, I wondered what variety Mr. PH was too, CG. What else would a potato farmer’s kid wonder? I conclude he is a Russet. And that Mrs. PH is half-baked.

And all meretricious.

You shut your mouth, Doc! Mrs. PH is a sweet potato!

LOL.. really cool one RB :D

BG, haven’t you seen the commercial where Mrs. PH is nagging/scolding/lecturing Mr. PH in the convertible while he is driving. Eventually, her mouth flies off and out of the car, and Mr. PH keeps right on driving. And he smiles, smiles, smiles….

It would certainly be wrong to wonder what sort of potato disease the potato heads in the bottom picture were suffering from, CG/Doc.

Which reminds me, I should get on with the potato head balaclava.

Those potatoes do seem to have some cancerous growths, KN. I hope Mr. and Mrs. PH wear sunscreen. I protect mine with little straw hatties. Sunburnt potatoes have toxic glycoalkaloids, ya know.

Powdery scab.

Oh, wait, the bottom photo? Silver scurf.

Hope you are not going to explain watcha mean by the glyco… glyca… glyamathingies…
Dont wanna zap ya.. :D

Although a little sunburn on a new potato is tasty.

MMMmmm roasted potatos! Add a little onion and garlic and it’s good to go! :)
