I yam what I yam

Five years in jail for calling someone a spud?

Wow. Hold the ketchup.

In Texas them's fightin' words.

Good thing he didn't call him a ***skin, the UN would get involved.

A dollop of sour cream, and I could see the resemblance.

Although with that furrowed brow, I'm thinking he's more of a crinkle-cut guy.

"Hey Sata! This spud's for you!"

That would fry me.

Geez, Dan Quayle couldn't even spell it.

Pomme de terre terror.

A chip off the old block

The President was a bit flummoxed by the insult, but regained his composure after reinserting his ears, glasses, feet, lips, mustache and arms.

Not a potato, a sweet potato. There's a difference.

«Patate» plutôt que «pomme de terre».

*snork* @ the mash-up !

Can you imagine what it would be like if defamation of the president were a crime here? Half the country would be in jail. Sigh. Someday, someday ...

I would not call him sweet. Potato - yes. Sweet - no.

Hey, they call me MISTER Potato, and smile when you say that!---the famous line by Curley Q. Frye

@Annie: that's MR. potato . . .

triple-simul post....Woohoo!

You say "potato", I say "Zambian Opposition Leader"...

I don't think that version will catch on.

And the vice president is a marshmallow.

I often thought GW was dumb as a potato, but then I realized that was an insult to potatoes everywhere.

If he ran for a part-time position, would he be known as Spud Lite?

You NEVER go full potato.
