PlotEdit

Michael and his family sit down to eat potatoes however they're all hot so

Michael, Brian and Connie before eating the potato blow on a piece of it that's on their fork until it's cool and eat it.

Instead of doing what his other family members did Harold stuffs a great big chunk of potato into his mouth and due to the heat burning the inside of his mouth his eyes pop out, flaps his hands towards his mouth in an attempt to cool his mouth, yells, bobs his head up and down and spits a potato all over his plate, due to this Harold warns his family about the potatoes being hot when they already knew this and figured out a way to cool them down.

We sit down to eat, and the potato's a bit hot. So I only put a little bit on my fork, and I blow. *puff puff* 'Till it's cool. Just cool. Then into the mouth. [licks lips] *WHOIP* *click* Nice!

And there's my brother, he's doing the same. [licks lips] *puff puff* 'Till it's cool. Just cool. Into the mouth. *WHOIP* *click* Nice.

There's my mum, she's doing the same.[licks lips] *puff puff* 'Till it's cool. Just cool. Into the mouth. [licks lips] *WHOIP* *click* Nice!

But my dad. My dad, what does he do? He stuffs a great big chunk of potato into his mouth, and then that really does it. His eyes pop out. He flaps his hands. He blows, he puffs, he yells, he bobs his head up and down. He spits bits of potato all over his plate and he turns to us and he goes, "Watch out, everybody! The potato's really hot!"
