Tiny Tater Tot

Winning caption by Diana K:
This ain’t a tater for the faint of hearted
No silent bite, cause it’s crunchy and salted.
I ain’t gonna be just a tater in the crowd
You’re gonna shout my goodness
as you eat me out loud….
It’s my life, it’s now or never
I ain’t gonna last forever
I just wanna make your taste buds sing.

Last night I ate fancy tater tots while Bon Jovi sat at the next table. And it wasn’t even a dream! Just a New York evening. Now I’ve got rock anthems and fried potatoes on the mind…

  1. PEEL?! I thought you said purl.
    Wait a second, i’m guessing now we aren’t going to a BASH either.

  2. “I’m a tater…in a steel basket I’m fried…I’m wanted (waaanted) mashed, peeled or fried.”
    *cue: guitar solo in Bon Jovi’s ‘Dead or Alive’.

    :)

  3. The tater tot thought and thought,
    why did people want him hot?
    The grisly truth was then revealed–
    He was wanted as a meal!

  5. Tot through the heart and you’re too lame,
    you give taters a bad name.

    (that seems a little mean, though I’m from the UK and we don’t have tater tots over here so I could guess what they were but had to look it up, to check)

    But my preference is…

    She says we’ve gotta hold on to that potato tot,
    it doesn’t make a difference if we eat it or not,
    we’ve got another, theres alot,
    For love – we’ll give to Jon!

  6. The tiny tater tried and tried
    But he couldn’t end up at Bon Jovi’s side.
    He was stuck on your plate,
    Between you and your date,
    When you ended his life,
    It was to his delight,
    That he want to the white light,
    Singing:
    Whooah, we’re half way there
    Take my hand and we’ll make it – I swear
    Livin on a prayer

  7. Tiny Tot went on a vacation for two weeks in England.
    When he cam back he didn’t say tomato any more, he said tom-a-to, and what’s more he also didn’t say potato any more BUT pot-a-to!
    Tot’s accent didn’t last long though-he went to France and became a FRENCH Fry!
    sacré bleu! ^_^

  8. im a cute wittle twator twot! So pwease dont eat me! By Lexa.
    It’g so cute! I actually had tatertot’s today!

  9. Idaho? I’m a tot! Not a ho…

    (I want to say more!, but I won’t… but but but…so many plausible things that cute little spud could say. *tear*)

  10. I live in Australia, we do not have tater tots, but I have heard of the name. What are they???

  11. Gulnoza – I think they’re the same thing as Potato Gems here in Australia. Little inch-long blobs of fried potato mash.

  12. no longer satisfied with being tucked away along with a few of his friends in a tiny section of a small plastic tray, tater tot dreamed of graduating out of grade school lunch and becoming an exchange student in high school, wanting to be known as a tater tot no more, but as a french fry tater teen

  13. My polkadotted cousins are speck tators, and my plain, russet cousins common taters. The kids at the circle cut fry place are rotaters. I may be a tater tot now, but when I grow up, I will be a computater, not some imitater!

  14. I may be the tiniest tater tot that ever came to be but I have something that other don’t – lots of knits & purls :-)

  15. Bon Jovi may have met his match because, inside, that is not just *a* tater tot, that is a popular fried side dish accompanied by scrambled eggs, ketchup, and oily goodness in one!
