Cornwall UK beach covered with sea potatoes

"Experts believe the stranding was evidence of a mass mating event gone wrong. Sea potatoes venture out of their burrows to breed, but a storm may have killed...the mood"

"[Last August] A truck driver, hauling thousands of loose potatoes, was heading northbound on Highway 285 and just east of C-470, his brakes on the trailer caught on fire."

"According to Lakewood police, the fire fight was going OK until the trailer collapsed, spilling potatoes all over the highway. The truck, along with all the loose potatoes, was a total loss."

"...thousands of loose potatoes rotted for weeks on the side of Highway 285. Most still have a potato shape weeks later, but they were becoming shriveled, giving off an especially bad smell that I experienced firsthand."
