# What's green, fuzzy, and if it fell out of a tree would kill you?
# A pool table.
Mom and Dad Potato sit down with their three daughter potatoes. "Kids," they say, "you're old enough now to go out and find yourselves husbands. We want you to be happy with them, but we also want you to be sure and choose a husband the whole family can be proud of." With that, they send their children forth to find mates.
A few months later the first daughter returns. "Mom, Dad, I'd like you to meet my fiance, Peter Potato. Peter's from Idaho."
"Idaho! Wonderful! Welcome to the family, Peter."
A few months after that the second daughter comes home. "Mom, Dad, I'd like you to meet my fiance, Paul Potato. Paul is from Maine."
"Maine! Well, delighted to meet you, Paul." A few months after that, the third daughter walks in. "Mom, Dad, I'd like you to meet my fiance, Tom Brokaw."
"Um...would you excuse us for a moment, Tom?"
The parents take the third daughter aside and tell her that they do not approve of this match and will cut her out of the will if she goes through with it.
"But Mom! Dad! I thought you'd be thrilled! What's the matter with Tom Brokaw?"
"Don't you understand? He's a common tater!"
