I like potatoes. They are so yummy in my tummy, and can be made into may different foods like:
  • french fries
  • mashed potatoes
  • hash browns
  • home fries
  • steak fries
  • french fries
  • pizza
And the list could go on and on. Unfortunately, potatoes just don't have any personality. I'm thinking that to add what they lack, I'm gonna open up a store that sells "Potatoes with Personality" and I'll name that store, "Plentiful Potatoes with Personality."

That's pretty much what I picture the store looking like. A big brick shop with a lot of potatoes inside. Should I paint the door green? I don't want anyone to get the impression any green vegetables are inside. I don't want to scare away my customers. Maybe I'll write on the door, "No Veggies Inside."

I think I'll get the potatoes from a potato farmer and cut out the middle man. If I can't find anyone who grows potatoes, I'll just go to Kroger. Then I'll take my marker, knife and doll clothes and start lathering on the personality. Here are a few ideas I've got so far:
This is Lonely Larry. Won't you be a pal and buy this lonely guy? If you don't, I'll peal off all his skin! and eat him! muhahahaha
Not everyone can pull of a monocle. Well, Monocle Max here does it quite... well. That's not just personality, that's class. Snazzy!
I was thinking I'd name this one either Holey Potato (Batman!) or Poop Assteroid. Instant classic!

I know what you're thinking. How can you get in on this crazy awesome plan to make money and cool potatoes? Well, you can start by finding out where I can find potato farmers. I don't think I've ever met one before. Do they give free samples? Do you have to pick/dig your own? I'm confused, and a little dizzy. I need a potato milk shake.

In Idaho you can stop by a potato farm and get a free baked potato to try. Kind of like wine tasting. Except you end up with a 50 pound bag of potatoes instead of a bottle of wine.
