A mister no more: Mr. Potato Head goes gender neutral
JOSEPH PISANI
Thu, February 25, 2021, 8:37 AM
NEW YORK (AP) Mr. Potato Head is no longer a mister.

Hasbro, the company that makes the potato-shaped plastic toy, is giving the spud a gender neutral new name: Potato Head. The change will appear on boxes this year.

Toy makers have been updating their classic brands to appeal to kids today. Barbie has shed its blonde image and now comes in multiple skin tones and body shapes. Thomas the Tank Engine added more girl characters. And American Girl is now selling a boy doll.

Hasbro said Mr. Potato Head, which has been around for about 70 years, needed a modern makeover.

I thought they were ahead of their time with it being gender fluid.

Stupid is contagious, but unfortunately, not deadly enough to eliminate them all.

On Fox news this morning, the gender neutral shit was cancelled after mass outrage and we still have a spud with a pudd and MR.s Potato Head.
