No Potatoes!

This weekend's game between TCU and Boise State was supposed to be in Fort Worth...until the Boise State administration went and cried to the Mountain West this summer, claiming that the game should be in Boise since TCU is leaving the conference. That's petty and childish enough already, but now Boise State themselves have eyes to leave the MWC. Like Joe Paterno, I think they knew about this the whole time. You sneaky, sneaky, jean shorts-wearing smurfs!

To combat this, Spit Blood proposes hitting Idaho where it hurts- by boycotting potatoes for the week! You may not know it, but outside of tacky, synthetic blue turf, potatoes are Idaho's #1 cash crop. Roughly 50% of the state's population is employed in the potato industry, and Boise State offers several potato-related majors. Kellen Moore, the Broncos' 5th year senior quarterback, is actually working on his Master's degree in French-Fry Basket Shaking after having already completed his Bachelor's degree in Mouth-Breathing.

So if you had plans to make baked potatoes one night this week, scrap them. If you were going to make potato pancakes, stop being weird and just make normal ones. Instead of fries, eat something that isn't going to act like a knife straight to the valves of your heart.

Give up potatoes for one week, and who knows what me might accomplish. If we can keep just one Idaho family from having a Happy Thanksgiving, this will be a success.

GO FROGS! NO POTATOES!

CJ Wilson would suggest that "instead of potato chips, go for the crunchy vegetables." I would suggest that CJ Wilson is a douchebag, but I guess I'll take his advice this week.

Just to clarify, are we allowed to eat Texas potatoes? Cause I love me some taters.

Bumblebeetuna said...

Don't for get about the texas chip... aka the tortilla chip.

do freedom fries count?

GrammyAndPapa said...

Where did you get your statistics that say roughly 50% of Idahoans are employed in the potato industry? Proof, please, or is this just purple smoke?

Pretty sure it's a joke, like Kellen Moore's bachelors in mouth breathing.

cmlakey said...

Apparently they don't teach the definition of hyperbole in Idaho.

B-O-Y-C-E said...

Or the skill of nose breathing for that matter...

For those of you looking for a replacement for breakfast--just fry up some plantains!

I found this link from EDSBS - check out the comment section - the people of Idaho must read Spit Blood because they are believing you about the boycott of potatoes.

So this is essentially saying, "Boycott potatoes in an attempt to damage the Idaho economy because their state college football team did something we don't agree with."? Which side is being petty now. This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

shortnkerley's said...

Seriously, jokes are completely lost on the brain-dead folks of Idaho. Do you REALLY think this blog is singlehandedly attempting to damage the Boise economy???? You people really aren't very bright, are you?

EdK said...

I was just at the grocery store ... the price of potatoes is spiking!!!!

Now, can SpitBlood do something about the price of gas, please.

Boise State 53
TCU 24

Suck on that toads!!!!!

Casey Robbins said...

Boycott our potatoes? That's what we want! We know you can't do it. You'll fail miserably because our potatoes are so good. And when you realize how much you love them, you'll appreciate them even more. Ha! Joke's on you guys! Demand will go way up in the DFW area after this week!

Go Broncos!

Hey, I don't want the Idaho potato business to go under... think of all the people with no other marketable skills (like BSU grads) who would end up on welfare. If my money is gonna have to help these guys one way or the other, I'd rather get something tasty out of the deal.

bleedsblueBSU said...

I like how these T-C-fools whine that BSU can't take a joke, and then they get all miffed because they took obnug.com seriously. Nice move

Rotten Arsenal said...

Who on here got miffed? We think it's hilarious.

FrogGal said...

What if I ate a purple potato? Would the purpleness offset the Idahoness?
