Four guys are driving cross-country together -- one from Idaho, one from Iowa, one from Florida, and the last one is from New York.
After a while the man from Idaho starts pulling potatoes from his bag and throwing them out the window. The man from Iowa asks, "What the heck are you doing?" The man from Idaho says, "Man, we have so many of these darned things in Idaho -- I'm sick of looking at them!"
