Why I Love Mr. Potato Head

'Cause he brings the silly to such serious presidential candidates as McCain, Obama and Clinton. (If you ask me, Obama is the only one of the three who seems to find it really funny.)

The story of the young man and his spudhead began in 2004, when Green inherited the toy from his dying grandfather. Grandpa Robert had kept the faux spud on his bedroom shelf, Green says, and treated it like nothing more than a decoration. Green, however, wanted to show the toy around. So wherever he went — and Green’s traveled quite a bit — so went the spudhead. To the Statue of Liberty, Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, the Marine Corps War Memorial.

His parents and younger sister have a three-word explanation for this.
"That’s just Andy," says his mom, Jenny Green, a secretary at Clinton Community College.
