Furl it!
Six-foot, 136-pound Mr. Potato Head, stolen from outside the Providence Journal, mysteriously appeared on the College Green in the wee small hours of May 15. At about 3:30 a.m. two unidentified men were spotted unbolting the sculpture and hauling it off in a U-Haul, leaving only a note that promised, "Don't worry, you'll get it back." Mr. Potato Head sculptures - forty-six of them, to be exact - are scattered around the state as part of a tourism campaign. (Hasbro, the spud's creator, is based in Rhode Island.)

When the potato appeared on the Green that afternoon, it had been plastered with newspaper headlines. A crowd of students briefly admired the icon before seeing it hurriedly picked up by police, who, according to witnesses, failed to inform Mr. Potato Head of his Miranda rights. ',
