My Name is Potato

Well, it's not, but after this I might just have to change it.

I love the enthusiasm and total commitment to the lyrics here

Where the hell did you get that?

My housemate & co-fellowship recipient Sarah. Fabulous, isn't it!

Potato in space! Awesome!

Although I bet that woman is now a banker or something and is thinking... "Damn you You Tube!!! I thought my sordid past of Potato Advocacy was hidden for good!"

T said...

Actually, I think she's a politician!

I love Potato!!

Rob said...

Yeah, a "centre-right" politician according to Wikipedia. The Italian political scene is is so much more interesting than America's. Can you imagine finding a lost video of John McCain, all flush with youthful exuberance, dancing and singing about vegetables?

T said...

How cool would that be! Wonder how much damage it would do him as a politician--because surely it would do *some*....

Rob said...

Yeah, but you know, of all the current crop of candidates, he's the one I can most imagine doing something like that. I mean, just look at him.

I think it's interesting that the potato in the video demonstrates his Americanness by putting on an Uncle Sam hat, waving flags, and shooting guns in the air.

T said...

Yeah, some things haven't changed (how the potato shows he's American). And as for McCain, I think singing about potatoes rather than eating too many would probably help....

Tu sei la patata oggi rinomata l’accento un po’ straniero dell’americano impero.
You are a potato - today famous - foreign accent from the American empire.
Tu non sei un’animale non mangi la carne ne’ erba ne’ uova tu nutri soltanto di terra sola.
You aren’t an animal, don’t eat meat nor grass, nor eggs - You live only off the dirt.
Tu sei la patata se ti parlo la tua voce mi risponde stranamente con l’accento straniero
You are a potato - If you speak your voice responds strangely with a foreign accent.
Potato potato potato.
