Mr Potato Head was a popular toy made from plastic in the shape of a potato for the entertainment of Pad brats. The toy included various attachments that when added to the plastic potato formed a potato character. The toy became very popular following the Toy Story films.

Also a rather unkind nickname for a squaddie who in these rather more enlightened times would be described as "Facially Challenged".
