After 70 years no More Mr. Potato Head. Just Potato Head for gender neutrality

https://apnews.com/article/mr-potato...814657be41a9d8

NEW YORK (AP) Mr. Potato Head is no longer a mister.

Hasbro, the company that makes the potato-shaped plastic toy, is giving the spud a gender neutral new name: Potato Head. The change will appear on boxes this year.

Toy makers have been updating their classic brands to appeal to kids today. Barbie has shed its blonde image and now comes in multiple skin tones and body shapes. Thomas the Tank Engine added more girl characters. And American Girl is now selling a boy doll.

Hasbro said Mr. Potato Head, which has been around for about 70 years, needed a modern makeover.

I like when he was simply addressed as “ hey potatohead “ in a movie. Toy Story I think.

I had the 1950s MPH - you used a real tater and then cooked it.
Today's MPH is really "whipped."

What do you get when you cross a penis with a potato?


A dictator...

What's next? Barbie will be changed to a unisex (unigender?) name like Terry? Ken will be known as Kendra? Let's get rid of names and titles altogether and just be known as some 12 digit number. Let's get our babies out of vending machine while were at it -- a dispenser of the genderless.

Maybe Zager & Evans were just a little off in their prediction.


Disclaimer -- the song has the word "man" in it. I did not feel like dubbing the replacement words of "imp", "cis", or "eunich". Deal with it.
