A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

NOT JUST ANY SPUD

A Mr. Potato Head toy could send you to prison for life if you stuff it with 10.5 ounces of ecstasy tablets and send it to Australia.


Customs officers there discovered the drugs in the children's toy, sent from Ireland, when they removed a panel from the back of the head today.

While officers said the maximum penalty for importing drugs to Australia is life imprisonment, no arrests have been made. They added that the concealment was one of the most unusual ones discovered in recent times.

Now, we know why Mr. Potato Head is always smiling ... unless you put his mouth on upside down. I see it now... Mr Potato Head commerical - Here is your brain on drugs.

Good thing the drugs weren't stashed in a Chatty Cathy doll because I have a feeling she would've done some talking.

If Diana married her Spud, wouldn't she be Mrs. Potato Head?
