Potato Puns At Their Finest

By Ruby M

Joined by the other fruits, veggies, and even other fresh produce, potatoes and their delicious friends are taking the food pun world by storm. 

However, before we get into the punniest potato puns, we must state that potatoes are possibly one of the best foods out there. You can fry them, bake them, boil them, mash them and even roast them and each way of cooking them makes them taste completely different! Oh, and you can make them into vodka. A food that you can eat and that can get you drunk? Yes, please!

Okay – back to the potato punnies. Despite the name of this comic series not being directly about vegetables, potato puns are a frequent theme of Fruit Gone Bad – a series of one-panel comics by the Instagram user NY Cartoonist.

Sorry to the world of potatoville, but it looks like you’re all in the oven today because Super Potato has taken a day off – and he isn’t being sweet about not being available to save the world either.

In this illustrated world, baked potatoes aren’t only a dish served with butter, and couch potatoes are taken to a whole new level of meaning – and we and all of the Instagram page’s 82k followers are so here for it.

If you’re a foodie at heart and want to laugh at some more funny potatoes and other food-related puns then you’d best get following @fruitgonebad on Instagram – but be careful, much like yummy potatoes – this page can be pretty addictive.
