Pilgrim Tater



Pilgrim Tater has just arrived here at Vegetable Liberation Army headquarters to head up the new Veggie guerrilla task force known as the Holiday Meal Recovery Unit ("HMRU"). This newly formed VLA offshoot is charged with infiltrating human occupied territory during the coming holiday season in order to recover and extract any and all Vegetables before succumbing to death by side dish. Working closely with VLA Kommander Killer Korn, Pilgrim Tater believes that his team is well prepared and will succeed in liberating thousands of Fruits and Vegetables from nefarious human holiday tables. During the November mission ramp up period you will have a chance to meet the rest of the HMRU team and will receive regular updates regarding mission status.

Please feel free to direct any questions or concerns regarding HMRU's mission, training or team to the comments section on this blog. We will attempt to answer your inquiries as soon as Vegetably possible. Thank you.

- LadyLinoleum, Chief Correspondence Officer, VLA Headquarters

Deneen, this is dedicated to you. More to come...

Will there be any cranberries?
How 'bout a sweet tater Mrs. Pilgram Tater? They could have little "tater eyes" offspring!

For some odd reason when I saw him, I thought "Where's the gravy?" and then I thought perhaps the gravy could be given a name that would sound like it came out of the game Clue, and then I imagined a VLA version of Clue, and the phrase: "Kommander Killer Korn in the Kitchen with the Salad Shooter" popped into my head!

Could this be a result of my withdrawal from the Fentanyl?

When I saw the name of the post all I could think was taters have eyes. Just in time for Thanksgiving.

I love him! Especially his eye, he looks like he's been drinking the cooking wine LOL

Thanks for the laugh, really needed it today considering I will be spending most of my afternoon cleaning up fiberglass insulation dust (long story)

Vive le VLA!!!

He's really got that laconic pilgrim look! He's one of those "strong, silent" types, right? I'm sure you'll have many female members in the VLA real soon.

The Potato Brigade has arrived. It's about time those potatoes did something besides watching TV. Is the eye still looking at me? Amazing work as always.

Some serious stern Pilgrim mojo going on there--I can totally picture him making a guerilla raid on my produce bin!
