Russia will no longer be receiving potatoes from Idaho.

BOISE, Idaho - The state of Idaho has just informed the government of Russia that it will no longer be selling them anymore Idaho potatoes.

The economic decision was based on the fact that Russia continues to go against the wishes of the United Nations by not stopping their goal of completely taking over the Ukraine.

As everyone knows the best potatoes in the world are grown in Idaho and the state ships their pride and joy to 103 countries of the world.

But now that Russia has refused to obey the request of the UN and leave the Ukraine alone, Idaho is officially marking Russia off of its 'ship to' list.

All of Idaho's potato farmers are in complete agreement, with the one exception of Pocatello farmer Nicolai Valdimir Stromcovich, who was born in Moscow, Russia.

SIDENOTE: The African countries of Upper Shambutu and Lower Zamgola have requested that Idaho consider increasing their potato shipments now that Russia will no longer be receiving any.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
