I really wanted to make up a joke to go along with a picture of this potato that showed up in our CSA box. I really wanted it to be “What do you get if you cross…” sort of thing. But I couldn’t think of anything funny enough to pay proper respect to an already amusing potato that looks like a duck.
I came up with a number of possible punchlines (along the lines of a “ducktator,” like a dictator, possibly playing on famous dictator names, like Pol Pot, or adding quacks into names, like Fidel Quackstro), but I couldn’t pull it into a whole joke.
Nonetheless, I just ran around and held a quick modelling photo sesh while the kids were outside playing. Now I can share my spud’s beauty with the world. Please feel free to make up your own jokes (and, why yes, that is a “wood duck,” and yes, one of my children was playing “mass” with Legos).
