Now Crass Lepeat After Me

The other day my 10-year-old son had an English (as a foreign language) class at his Yokohama City public elementary school and came home with an accent. It was weird.

  1. I just visited the Potato Portal and was very disappointed that there was nothing about the most famous potato couple of all time.
    Where is Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head?

  2. Will you be doing a posting for the birthday boy?

  3. Will you be posting any new information? Seems like you are behind with new postings and your fans miss the exciting information that you provide.

  4. Sorry about the delay. The November issue is still at the printers. Once the print issue has been sent to all subscribers and been on the newstands for at least a month we will make it available online. As usual the online edition will be available to subscribers on the date of issue. In the meantime for some alternative coverage of events we suggest you peruse some of our these equivalent periodicals and websites:
    Atlantic Monthly
    New York Times
    The Potato Portal
    Wall Street Journal
