Is The Potato Bowl Mascot ‘Spuddy Buddy’ Offensive? [POLL]
If you thought the blue turf in Boise was disturbing, have you seen the mascot for the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl? "Spuddy Buddy" might be one of the most obscene mascot in sports.
Long before has was officially adopted by the Potato Bowl in 2011, the mascot was created by the Idaho Potato Commission. Originally, the Commission attempted to license Mr. Potato Head. After failing to reach an agreement with Hasbro, Spuddy Buddy was born.
Over the years, he's become an icon. To date, the IPC has given away over 1 million Spuddy Buddy plush toys. Although he remains a popular character, some critics say that Spuddy Buddy is inappropriate.
