Quote of the Week #7 (potato-like)

Ok, what the hell is up with Blogger. Forbidden, my ass. Do that to me again and I'll kick your potato-like butts...stupid blogger people. Making me depend on them for technology I can't fix with duct tape.

Potato-like. To possess or display characteristics of a potato. Are bloggers observant of the distinct potato-ness of things? At least anybody besides last week's winner?

Luckily, some are.

First, there are multiple entries about the mashed cauliflower substance made popular by the Aitkens cult:

Cooking Know-How For a smoother potato-like texture, puree cooked cauliflower and dressing together in food processor or with immersion blender until very smooth.

Often the word 'like' is not used as a direct suffix to potato, but often to create a simile:
Then, I just went off on the net, in this careless sort of day when I had no outting planned, and started researching dental chair potato like a maniac

um, ok. Good luck with that.

The hunt also educated me to aspects of living in Finland. #31 on the list of "You Know You Have Been In Finland Too Long, When..." is:
31. When you're hungry you can peel a boiled potato like lightning.

Not exactly David Letterman material. The rest of the list is funnier if you want to check it out.

Now for the winner!

I chose this quote only for use of the words 'potato like' but for the different ways one can interpret the word 'balls'.
Big fish with small potato like balls. The resulting mouth full of tiny bones made enjoying this dish difficult.

And, like, Honorable Mention! lol

ok so i started this potato like a yr ago lol...but i figured we'd start it up again so here-pass the potato...please! lol

This Sunday morning stunk like a gas station rest room next to a tex-mex restaurant after all-you-can-eat tamales night.

Hey there diddy...Perhaps I wasn't clear. I need a word yo. Though that quote is mighty fine.

Give me a word!

Ahh. The word is "chubby" (said in same tone as the guy on the commercial who says "fluffffy")

So, "chubby" it is.

Thanks for the help since I had another winner Loser this week. But you're the last one of my winners that hasn't participated, so if I have another no show I'm not sure what to do? Oh, the horror. Maybe I'll have to pay more attention to who wins. Hmmmm....

Chubby is a good one.
