“Mr. Potato Head to lose ‘Mr.’ title in gender-neutral rebrand”
BBC News

“Most scholars since the time of the English philosopher Francis Bacon (1561–1626) have agreed
that the tendency to anthropomorphize hinders the understanding of the world.”

Stewart E. Guthrie

Yammering, stammering,
Mr. Potato Head
cries, “Honorific or
not, it’s a sham!

Either way, humans who
doll me up don’t have a
clue what I yam.”
