Mr Potato Head

Do you remember Mr Potato Head, the real one not the one from Toy Story.
The one were you had to supply you own real potato and stick the eyes etc into it.
Cutting edge toys in those days, real frontier stuff.
Well I was just looking at random at Morguefile when this pic came up, and I decided to have a play around with it.

Now if you want to play, you could use the potato supplied here, or supply your own one (or more).
I'd love to see what others come up with.
Make it look like a celeb/s (I'm sure the site rules will allow this) use animal parts, use what you like, either way I hope you have fun.

One rule please don't make one to look like Wayne Rooney, that would be too easy, he's already a potato head.

Re: Mr Potato Head

Ok so i thought it would be fun ( and i did think more would of had a go ) but it is harder than what i thought, or is it just my idea's
anyway here is one and to explain my weird attempt and save your brains a bit it is supposed to be

Sir Walter Raleigh

well i thought it was clever but there again i also thought doing King Edward would be
And i bet you can now guess why i like doing computer art, my freehand is terrible

Re: Mr Potato Head

i see no reason why there cant be faberge tomatos or faberge strawberries and certainly no reason why there cant be faberge potatoes. i mean, i've seen nothing written in stone that there only the egg gets that distinction, right?
