My only concern is how this change might affect Mark Watney's chances for survival.

The real question here...
WHO on this forum is going to build a Mr. Potato Head rocket? (or Mrs. Potato Head, if that's your thing!)
I suppose any rocket could be used as the "potato", and the facial parts could be glued on it.

I'm betting it's already been done... anybody ever remember a Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head Rocket?

Looks like he road a pickle to the moon. Wait, am I allowed to say that?

I like the idea. But could you imagine the headline if your recovery system fails.

"Florida man dies being impaled by Mr. Potato head"
The headlines in the aerospace newsletters would read "Florida man succumbed to his injuries after being impaled with a ballistic spud"

It does seem surprising that Hasx continues to discriminate against other vegetables. And don’t get me started about grains!

Wait... Who is the dog?
An article I just found that might answer that question, but I don't have an opinion (yet anyway):

Thanks for this. My kids are old enough that we missed the Paw Patrol era. The article paints a pretty damning picture, but the practices described as used by Paw Patrol marketing are pretty common as regards gender stuff. One the other hand, as a kid in the 70s I had two Scooby Doo shirts, one with just Scooby and Shaggy, the other had the whole gang including Daphne and her purple outfit. I had no problem with the shirt.
