the tiny state of Delaware in May of 2008.
While the state
may be small in size, the tater knew that Delaware was very important
to US history in that it was the first state to ratify the federal Constitution
on December 7, 1787 and thus became the first state of the Union.
Becoming the first
of the United States was only one of their many important contributions
Delaware is also
the first place to ever hold a beauty contest in the US way back in
1880. Thomas Edison was one of the contest judges. Many believe that
this event paved the way for the plastic surgery industry.
The state is also
home to the very first John Deere tractor ever produced and the first
place that the Stars and Stripes were ever flown
While Delaware has
many claims to fame, they all pale in comparison to its crown jewel:
the world's largest medical bag, located just outside of Wilmington.
It was an attraction that the potato simply could not miss.
The enormous doctor
bag measures roughly 10' x14' x6'. Spud believed that it was specially
developed by the FDA to hold all the pill bottles associated with controlling
weight gain. It not only holds the pill that 'curbs yor appetite', but
it also needs to hold the pills that combat all of the side effects
of the drug. Of course, those pills have their own side effects as well,
and there's more drugs to fight those. Once all of the side effects
are addressed, the behemoth bag is almost able to close by itself.
The bag is supposedly
slated to go into production shortly and should be available at your
local Wal-Mart if they can find a flatbed truck big enough to transport
Rumour has it that
its purchase will come with a year membership to a noted rehab facility.
Spud returned to
Delaware in October of 2014 when he visited his inanimate pal, 'Myles'
from the Monster Mile at the Dover International Speedway.
Myles was in the
middle of 'deconstructing' the track surface so he wasn't able to visit
long, however the few did have a chance to swap memories from NASCAR
and Spud's many past adventures.
