Of Saaremaa and Snacks, Sort of

Once again, we are forced to bring to light yet another suspicious similarity in the world of snack-food marketing. We don't relish our role as defender of Mr. Peanut and Mr. Pringle, but we have to point out that there is no reason that you need a big handlebar mustache to sell stackable potato chips in a tube. So why does Mister Potato have to bite Mr. Pringle's style? Or more to the point, would you measure the amount of time that was put into developing the Mr. Potato logo in minutes, or in seconds? Anyway, if you ever want to discuss this with Mr. Potato, you can find him in the snack shop on the ferry from the mainland of Estonia to Saaremaa.
