“Watery Taste(ha, ha)” potato chips.

Fukui Prefecture’s dinosaur mascot, “Hiryuu” and Calbee officials show off their “Watery Taste*” potato chips

 
According to fukui.keizai.biz (in Japanese), Fukui prefectural Governor Nishikawa, “Watery Taste*” potato chips had, “the elegant taste by a combination of wet water potato and dry potato chips.”

NOTE (pun alert):
“Watery Taste potato chips” (水ようかん味 ポテトチップス) is direct (mis)translation of the term for the Japanese jellied dessert, mizu-yokan (水ようかん) shown below.

Ha, ha, I misread your “DIORAMA WITH A DRONE” for that crop-sprayer as a ‘DARUMA WITH A DRONE.’ wikipedia.org/wiki/Daruma_doll
Damn, not having a Daruma Drone (達磨ドローン) was a real lost opportunity in the crop-sprayer’s design aesthetic.
