      One night, the Potato family sat down to dinner–Mother Potato
      and her three daughters. Midway through the meal, the eldest
      daughter spoke up. “Mother Potato?” she said. “I have an
      announcement to make.”

      “And what might that be?” said Mother, seeing the obvious
      excitement in her eldest daughter’s eyes.

      “Well,” replied the daughter, with a proud but sheepish grin,
      “I’m getting married!”

      The other daughters squealed with surprise as Mother Potato
      exclaimed, “Married! That’s wonderful! And who are you
      marrying, Eldest daughter?”

      “I’m marrying a Russet!”

      “A Russet!” replied Mother Potato with pride.

      “Oh, a Russet is a fine tater, a fine tater indeed!”

      a fine tater, a fine tater indeed!”

      Once again, the room came alive with laughter and excited
      plan for the future, when the youngest Potato daughter
      interrupted. “Mother? Mother Potato? Um, I, too, have an
      announcement to make.”

      “Yes?” said Mother Potato with great anticipation.

      “Well,” began t he youngest Potato daughter with the same
      sheepish grin as her eldest sister before her, “I hope this
      doesn’t come as a shock to you, but I am getting married,
      as well!”

      “Really?” said Mother Potato with sincere excitement. “All
      of my lovely daughters married! What wonderful news! And
      who, pray tell, are you marrying, Youngest Daughter?”

      “I’m marrying Peter Jennings!”

      “PETER JENNINGS?!” Mother Potato scowled suddenly. “But
      he’s just a common tater!”
