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 watc h 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, I have been called half baked, could be worse I am sure.  At least I'm not one of those greast fries.

Hi Elaine - That's funny and a clever play on words.  I enjoyed reading your post and began thinking of other potato phrases as I went along; however, you did touch on them all.
