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

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
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

A  Commontater.
