November 1, 2008: My Son, Spud

Quote:
As a father of three daughters, Andrew Stewart has always wanted a son.
So, when his mother handed him a inch-long potato taken from a bag of Maris Pipers with an uncanny likeness to his nephew, he thought his prayers had been answered.

The carpet fitter, of Higher Bank Road, Fulwood, could not believe the likeness the vegetable he has dubbed 'Spuddy' bears to his young six-year-old relative.

The 46-year-old said: "He is only tiny but you can see a little face and even got the hair which looks like it is blowing in the wind; all the neighbours have been over and they cannot believe the likeness.

"My mum, Evelyn, gave it to me and said to give it to my youngest daughter Olivia, 9, and she will not leave him alone now.

Must be something in the genes, the whole family is daft. Or maybe the water, as the reporter seems to be afflicted too.

I predict Progeria in this lad's future.

I fear the Great Potato Conspiracy has affected the reporter's and the family's mind.
I say, as always, BEWARE OF POTATOES!

Perogy-a!

Progeria .... Perogy ... spud ... ha!

......that's either cute or scary.


elSicomoro  Saturday Nov 1 09:47 PM

Maybe they're just really fucking bored and/or easily amused in Fulwood.



ZenGum  Saturday Nov 1 10:00 PM

What, no recipes?

How long until that thing is on ebay?



Sundae  Sunday Nov 2 09:22 AM

Is it me, or is Spud in a boiled egg in the picture on the left?



Sheldonrs  Sunday Nov 2 09:28 AM

"They call me...Tater Salad."



richlevy  Sunday Nov 2 09:33 AM

What is it with the English and potatoes?

If anyone has read Terry Pratchett's Discworld, there is an interesting potatoe plot element in it.

All in all, I like the occasional British oddball story. Indian oddballs are jumping off roofs and growing 10 foot moustaches. American oddballs are usually good old boys trying out for the Darwin awards or finding religious meaning in toast. British oddballs have that cheery, low-key madness for which people try to find more pleasant synonyms - eccentric, fey, barmy, touched.

my god, what a racist thing to say!

If I had my spud-gun, I"d shoot ya!


elSicomoro  Sunday Nov 2 03:37 PM

Look, Sheldon doesn't seem like the "Deliverance" type, OK?



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Nov 2 06:12 PM

Deliverance has nothing to do with Gay. Deliverance was about humiliation and dominance, like all rapes.

If it makes you feel better, I'm going to see Kathy Griffin this Thursday. Do I get to keep my gay card?


xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Nov 2 06:19 PM

As long as you don't sleep with her after.



elSicomoro  Sunday Nov 2 06:19 PM

You're still a big Rosie O'Donnell fan too, right?

I like her when she's doing comedy. When she's on a rant, I tune her out. Same reason I don't watch jerks like Bill O'Reilly. I HATE it when someone shouts their viewpoint.


Gravdigr  Monday Nov 3 05:52 PM

Do ya think it's possible to hire Rosie to beat the shit out Bill O'Reilly? Really. At the end, there would be Bill O'Reilly, lying dead in the street, beside a pile of his own feces. Then, there would be Rosie, lying on a prison bunk, doing life. We would have to make a Lite beer commercial, because, "It just doesn't get any better than this."



TheMercenary  Monday Nov 3 06:27 PM

Check out Rosie and what she said when Bill O interviewed her. She said she was so nervous that she had the shits for a week before hand and couldn't eat. Maybe she should go on more often, it would be a great weight loss program for her. She is an idiot. But hey I like O'Reilly.

No. I don't know who she is.
So she isn't sufficiently gay of sufficiently famous.
No more cock for you.

Bet you wish you hadn't asked now.
