"Man, is there anything potatoes can't do?"

Potatoes and potato derivatives often make appearances throughout Free Country, USA. The style of potatoes seen can depend on the characters present. For example, the King of Town is seen with mashed and Awwww Gratin potatoes, while Strong Bad appears more commonly with potato chips. Lesser characters, such as Sickly Sam or The Ugly One, are more frequently seen around the burlap sack that typically contains potatoes, rather than the potatoes themselves. All characters also appear to enjoy french fries.
