Mr. Potato Head's Half-Baked Trip to Vegas

A Mr. Potato Head toy that normally resides at Union Street Grill & Grotto in Courtenay, British Columbia, went missing about a month ago. When he returned, the owners discovered the toy had gone on an unexpected visit to Las Vegas. The toy came back to the restaurant in a box, complete with a digital picture frame. A note inside the box read, "Mr. Potato Head's Half-Baked Adventure: Turn me on and enjoy."

The photos revealed Mr. Potato Head taking helicopter rides, trips to the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam, a ride in the cockpit of a plane, drinking alcohol and attending a Maroon 5 concert. The adventures even showed the toy using an airsickness bag on an airplane, tucked in blankets on a couch looking ill, drinking in a blurry shots at a bar and ready to fly home in an airport terminal.

Union Street Grill owners Mark and Danielle Duncan found the photographic evidence of Mr. Potato Head's adventure so funny that they posted the tale on their Website after a man brought the toy back in a box.

"Now people are lining up to take Mr. Potato Head with them on their travels and the Duncans are planning to take him with them to see the Dave Matthews Band play at the Gorge in Washington," Canada.com reports.
