I have just read that Mr Potato Head (you know that cute little toy that many of our children had) is now gender neutral and is now just Potato Head.

I do hope someone has told Mrs Potato Head about her husband 🥔

but there was a Mrs Potato head??? it was even in Toy story 2 fgs
who is Mrs Potato Head now - the ex wife?

Not sure even calling them that is allowed under the terms of being woke and PC. Isn't it a slight against potatoes all over the world? How do the potatoes feel about this. Is this just some human superiority thing?

And next week Disney will be adding a warning to the beginning of all Toy Story movies that they contain potato stereotypes that some viewers may find offensive.

What is the preferred pronoun for Potato Head?

Urmstongran. 😅😂🤣

Mx Potato Head is the correct polite form.
let's not be over-familiar.

First they take his pipe away and now they take his masculinity 🍟

They might as well have him decapotated.

It’s chips for him (it) (them) (they) then. 😨

Has Mr or Mrs PotatoHead complained?

Casdon Thu 25-Feb-21 22:00:35

grandmajet no pronouns necessary - just Pothead will do.

Grannynannywanny Thu 25-Feb-21 22:00:59

Chips sound very a peeling

Mrs Potato Head had the last word. She flounced off after announcing “ I yam what I yam”

Doodle Thu 25-Feb-21 22:15:34

If they had children would they be chips off the old block?
Will there still be a moustache in the box I wonder, or lipstick?

Perhaps they waffle?

LauraNorder Thu 25-Feb-21 23:03:36

I bet she gave him a roasting for that decision. Will they keep their titles, the Dauphin and Dauphinois? Will she be interviewed wearing a jacket? Will he join her later?

Perhaps they’ll drown their sorrows and get mashed.
