Potatoes and Wire

If you have two spheres, you can always make a loop with some wire, such that it fits both of them (for example you can shape it as a circle). If you have any two potatoes, can you do the same?

Yes, you can. Just take the two potato surfaces and intersect them. Their intersection will give you the shape of a wire which fits them both.
