It's Easier to Say than Saturntron or Uranustron!
19 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

More giggles as a married couple, fooling around on the beach are suddenly transported to a laboratory on a distant moon of Jupiter. They find out that the guy who is forced to live under the auspices of some aliens, has created some great stuff that would help out the world. He has a nutrient that can make giant sweet potatoes (which, of course, is why the space program came about). This proves confusing to the people and they wonder what they can do. Of course, when they get back, their biggest problem is people in the scientific community who think they are nuts. These people have no respect for sweet potatoes. Anyway, try this one out. It's different than anything you've seen before.
