US Secretary of State John Kerry presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov with potatoes from Idaho before the beginning of talks in Paris. Kerry said that Lavrov and he had spoken to one another several weeks ago and planned to discuss Syria.

two potatoes from a big cardboard box

If it was a "big" box, what else was in it? More potatoes? Carrots? His LEGO set? What?

I’ve got to admire the Russians for having the self-control not to reach across the table and slap the snot out of that idiot Kerry. Myself, I don’t think I could resist the temptation.

What did it cost to fly a box of Idaho potatoes to Paris?

It really was a big box. A big dirty old box with a sheet of torn and wrinkled butcher paper wadded up on top. The lack of any class as well as the pettiness of the insult has all of the earmarks of Bathhouse Barry.

The Russian should have held the potato aloft and told Lurch, “This looks like your chin.”

I hope the minister has the good sense to know he’s supposed to put them down the front of his trunks.

I had a Mr. Potato Head toy when I was a child, yup, it kinda looked like him. When thinking of him... pin the tail on the donkey also comes to mind.

He was probably telling him, that it is a good potato to make vodka out of. He is implying that Russians love to drinking heavy, and vodka is their drink of choice. /s

Kerry pulled his head out of his ass and two Idaho potatoes fell out of his ears. He blamed it on an old war wound.

“all this meat and no potatoes” was a phrase we used when I was a lad to signify a lack of women.
So maybe Kerry is symbolically offering himself to the Russian?

You are assuming they had minds to begin with. You might be assuming too much.

Kerry spent part of the Christmas holiday week with his family at one of their houses, in the ski town of Ketchum, Idaho, and apparently Lavrov had mentioned the fame of Idaho potatoes. So Kerry brought two of them along to Paris.

They were, in Lavrov’s words, “impressive.”

After Lavrov asked if he needed to keep the brown wrapping paper, a female adviser seated to Kerry’s right joked, “protection?”

Kerry joked that Lavrov likely won’t make vodka out of them, as he’s not a vodka drinker.

“Well, anyway,” Kerry said, presumably moving the conversation onto actual diplomatic talks.

It could be an omen that the Russians might enjoy turning Kerry into a blood ketchup bottle and so he brought the potatoes because Kerry does not feel worthy.
