Empty potato skins are collected from rubbish bins by specially trained squirrels. Then, they can be sold to people who want to disguise things as potatoes.

       o.k. for things that are the same size and shape as potatoes but I think you overlook the advantages of other vegetables. carrots would be a good disguise for <cough> perhaps not ... and onions for smaller things and cabbages for kings...   

       moomin, honey. are you feeling alright?

       i like to eat the potato skins. not after they've been in the bin though

       I was unaware there are people who don’t eat them. Around here you can order just the skins, as an appetizer at restaurants.

       hey keep up, this is a disguise idea   

       mmm, skins.

       Might make for clever french fry packaging.

       Ah, yes. I would like to disguise my car as a potato. Right now it’s a lemon.

       you need a fecking great citrus fruit, right?   

       sympathy - so is mine.
po, Nov 11 2005

       Mmm, citrus.
Shz, Nov 11 2005

       I'm fine, thank you [po], I was just in a very silly mood earlier. Although even now several hours later I still find myself giggling at it, so there's a chance that it's actually funny.

       ....and why is it everyone's skimmed straight over the small matter of...'the squirrels'
daaisy, Nov 11 2005

       yeah the squrrel dimenstion is a bit disturbing...

       Well, they're definitly cute.
daseva, Nov 12 2005

       I'd like to disguise how much I like this idea.
