    Sad Mr. Potato Head Has Been Skinned

    Orange County Register, 4/4/08

    As of 11:00 AM this morning, what was left of Mr. Potato Head, the lovable icon that has captured the imaginations of children all over the world, was found in Disney's California Adventure park. Anahiem CSI wasted no time on cordoning off the area to protect DCA's guests from viewing the carnage.

    "Yeah, it's pretty gruesome in there" said John Welter, Anaheim chief of police. "There are body parts all over the place. We found his nose over there in a corner."


    Just yesterday, the affable spud was greeting guests and cracking jokes:

    And yet today, all that could be seen of the former Pixar star was this....





    Detectives were already working on a number of leads. Yesterday, employees from Hofs Hut and In-n-out were seen lurking around Paradise Pier taking photographs. But suspicion fell almost immediately on McDonalds, which operates French Fry locations within the parks.

    "Our decision to offer giant wedge cut fries has NOTHING to do with the disappearance of Mr. Potato Head! You can't prove anything! I want my lawyer!" said a senior McDonalds official this afternoon.

    Shockingly, Hofs Hut officials offered to "take care" of the remains, but their motives were called in to question when they showed up at the park with a 5 gallon tub of Sour Cream.


    I think we should all have a moment of silence.










    Followed by a large order of fries.

    Brilliant!

    What you have works just fine.

    I don't have any puns right now, but another angle would have been to accuse me of being the culprit. I made mention in my rumor thread that I was "stalking" him. I then made a joke about how all I would need was a peeler and a butter knife. That might have worked too had it been posted in that same thread.

    But, what you have is brilliant. I laughed a lot once I got it.

    That was pretty good! Right down to the blurry undercover shot of the skinned MPH!

    More well-designed humor like this please!

    Ya know, that would've been believable had you not been able to see his feet in the so-called picture of "carnage."

    I got that shot this morning while trying to find Mr. Potato Head while riding Screamin. I knew that he had been boarded up again and was curious as to what was going on behind the barrier. Apparently he is being worked on at the moment, but it just struck me as hilarious that all was left was the backside of his skin.


    Actually, to be more accurate, he is currently in surgery....






    Apparently, they can rebuild him. They have the technology. They can make him better...faster......stronger....

    It's ....The Bionic Potato.



    *crickets*



    (Man. Tough crowd. Now I know how Don Rickles feels.)



    As for the April Fools....hey! I'm only three days late! :
