Mr. Potato Head is no longer. Appearing in his place will be "Potato Head". This is so as to not offend that tiny percentage of the population that experiences the mental illness known as gender dysphoria.

We've gone daft if we let this segment of the population dictate the naming of toy characters.

Wasn't there a Mrs Potato Head, too?

Turns out that was Mr. Potato Head in drag.

Did you ever see a bulge in her crotch? No? Well, that was because she tucked it back, like any self-respecting pre-op tranny.

In fact, other than some big feet and a few pathetic little stick arms, it looks like that's about all he has to give.

That doesn't even look like a real potato.

Maybe they should call him Mr Podildo Head.

Hey... that could be a new toy!!!

Yep! Estelle Harris, in the Toy Story seriesl



Albeit don't we just love the 'woke' culture of today? Every long-time brand name...70, 80, 90 years, has to be changed because someone thinks it's racist or discriminatory. No more 'UNCLE' in Ben's! No more 'Redskins' in Washington's NFL team! What's next, does Mr. and Mrs. T have to go away and become 'T' Bloody Mary mix?
Will they change the NY Giants name because it discriminates giant people?

Being a cynic, I’m thinking this move is motivated by cold hard cash.

 

Mr. Potatohead and Mrs. Potatohead are pretty much the same toy just with different doodads to plug into them. If (Hasbro? I think it’s Hasbro that makes them.) just makes “Potatohead” they only have to make ONE package and they’ll probably sell the doodads separately.

 

I’m a little surprised. I didn’t think they made those things anymore.

There were some Mrs. Potato head products too.

Will the SF Giants change their name too?

This is the biggest non issue ever, there is still a Mr. and Mrs. Potato head. They just changed the name of the toy line to Potato head.

I sentence you to 10 hours of mandatory Wrongthink(R) Cleansing, sponsored by Coca-Cola. Because the slogan 'open happiness' isn't woke enough for us.

Try to be less white.

What the flying (expletive) does that mean

Seriously Coke, you're just calling out white people for being white? Give us a chance, i'm no racist.

Hey Coke.... 

Try to be less soft drink-ish.

Try to be less carbonated.

Try to be less sugary.

Try to be less liquid.

Try to be less idiotic.
