Please let me know the meaning of “Way to go, Idaho???”?

Hi!!!! I'm not an English speaker but nowadays I'm studying English with Toy story 1.

But in the latter of the movie, Ham, one of the characters in this movie, said "Way to go, Idaho!".

I know the meaning of "way to go". (maybe great job and you did well) but I don't know what the "way to go, Idaho." means.

Is this a kind of expressions for Idaho state to be praized? Please let me know the meaning.. T_T

I'm really eager to know.

  • It is a mild joke. "Way to go" is an American expression that has the meaning you ascribe to it, i.e. "Well done, [that is] the way to go". "Idaho" is added purely because it rhymes with "Way to go". It's like saying "See you later, alligator" -- just a word that rhymes added to the end to be cute.

  • The state of Idaho is one of THE largest potato producers in the United States.

    Since Mr Potato Head happens to be a potato, Ham merely used Idaho as an appropriate,perhaps humorous rhyme.

  • Ham is talking to Mr. Potato Head. Idaho is a large producer of potatoes. He is using his nickname for Mr. Potato Head. So to go from the slang to English: = Well done, Mr Potato Head. It is not sarcasm because the line just before this quote is Sarge: Molly's first (Christmas) present is a Mrs. Potato Head." Which means Mr. PH now has a wife.
