Cooking Cartoon about Cooking Mashed PotatoesMashed Potatoes Cartoon

I asked my readers to come up with a good caption for this cartoon. There were so many good ones but I decided on this one because of its play on words. I must have thought of the idea for this cartoon around Thanksgiving when we have lots of friends and family over for a big meal with lots of mashed spuds. Someone suggested the Reluctant Gourmet is holding a whisk in his hand and that would making mashing the potatoes quite difficult but it is not a whisk but a masher.
