When potatoes are banned, only outlaws will have potatoes.

If you are going to take my potato away, you're going to have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands.

Now what next? Potato control laws?

As defense attorney I will argue for leniency on the basis that my client's mother was a crack Ida-ho.

I wonder if he carved and painted the potato first. That was similar to a jail break situation, where someone carved a bar of soap into the shape of a snub-nose pistol and painted it with shoe polish. All the guard knew was that something hard and said to be a gun was pressed into his back, and what he saw of it, it did sort of look like a gun.

It is funny what people get charged of using in "armed robberies." Things like bananas, cell phones, fingers, etc.

How do cops react to a potato standoff?

"Put down your tater now, or we'll shoot you with sour cream!"

And do they charge someone who assaults them with a potato with buttery?

If I were the DA, I'm not sure if potato charges would chive with me.

Wouldn't that be considered "Assault With A Spudly Weapon"
