A Guaranteed Set of Giggles for the Day!!

Well, 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 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,
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 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?

Are you sure?



Here it is!     A    COMMONTATER

....okay, this particular YAM had to look up Tom to understand this joke. It's because she comes from a faraway field... &*>

To be fair, I kinda guessed and enjoyed the joke anyway but just had to check... to be sure to be sure and all that. YAM xx

Oh groan ... how funny is this, Sylvia. I am a potato fan and love Yams as well as Tom Brokow ... what a hoot. I finally am getting caught up on what I missed while my computer had it's major operation. Feels good to be back, especially when I come over here and you make me laugh again. Thanks, Sylvia ...

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
