Morning humor from Sul:

One night, the Potato family sat down to dinner. Mother Potato, Father Potato, and their 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 Jersey Royal!" ..... "A Jersey Royal!" replied Mother Potato with pride. "Oh, a Jersey Royal is a fine tater, a fine tater indeed!"

As the family shared in the eldest daughter's joy, the middle daughter spoke up. "Mother, I too, have an announcement." "And what might that be?" asked Mother Potato, said with conviction. "I, too, am getting married!"

"And who are you marrying, Middle Daughter?"

"I'm marrying a King Edward," beamed the middle daughter. "A King Edward!" said Mother Potato with joy. "Oh, a King Edward is a lovely posh tater, a fine tater indeed!" Once again, the room came alive with laughter and excited plans for the future, when the youngest Potato daughter interrupted.

"Mother Potato?...Umm, I, too, have an announcement to make." "Yes?" said Mother Potato with great anticipation.

"Well," began the 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 Des Lynam!"

"Des Lynam?!"..Mother Potato scowls, "But he's just a common tater!"
