Technical Jokes and Cartoons-73

A Girl Potato and Boy Potato had eyes for each other, and finally, they got married and had a little sweet potato, which they called ‘Yam.’
Of course, they wanted the best for Yam. When it was time, they told her about the facts of life.

They warned her about going out and getting half-baked, so she wouldn’t get accidentally mashed, get a bad name for herself like ‘Hot Potato,’ and end up with many Tater Tots.

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. (Potato University ) so that she’d really be in the Chips when she graduated.

But despite 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……A COMMONTATER

A duck walks into a bar and asks the bartender, “Do you have duck food here?” The bartender says no and the duck leaves. The next day, the same thing happens. The duck wanders in and asks, “Do you have any duck food?” Once again, the nonplussed bartender says no and the duck leaves. On the third day, the duck enters the bar and the bartender asks, “What do you want this time?” The duck asks once more, “Do you have any duck food?” “No!” yells the bartender. “We don’t have any duck food. If you come back and ask me again, I’ll nail your feet to the floor!” The duck leaves and comes back the next day and asks, “Do you have any nails?” The bartender says, “No.” The duck then asks, “Do you have any duck food?”
