OK, Gene, maybe you'll like this one.

Well, Girl Potato and Boy Potato had eyes for each other, and finally they got married, and had a little sweet potato, whom they called 'Yam.'

Of course, they wanted the best for Yam.

When it was time, they told her 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......

Well, Kitty
there is another way to look at that one. She could have said what she meant... or restated her desire more clearly. Not nice to say nothing all through the experiences and then feel free to criticize all his efforts to show how he cared... I know, I know... just a joke. But, perhaps one that has a ring of truth in the background. Male, female, thing.

A man was sitting on the bed observing his wife looking at her self in the mirror Since her birthday was not far away he asked her what she would like. "I'd like to be six again," she replied.

On the morning of her birthday, he arose early, made her an nice big bowl of Lucky Charms, then took her to the theme park. What a day! He put her on all the rides in the park, roller coaster etc.every thing there was. Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down.

Then it was off to the movie: popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy, M&Ms. What a fabulous adventure !

Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed on the bed, exhausted. He leaned over her with a big smile on his face and lovingly asked, "Well Dear,what was it like to be six again?"

Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed.
"I meant my dress size ,you dumb ***!"

The moral of the story: even when a man is listening he is gonna get it wrong!
