potato story


 You know that all potatoes

have eyes. Well, Mr. and Mrs. Potato had eyes for

each other, and finally they got

married, and had a little sweet potato, whom

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
