1. Bake potatoes
2. Sweet potatoes
3. Green potatoes

also...this green potatoes thing concerns me

Green potatoes
Potatoes will often go green when they're not stored properly and they're exposed to light. This is due to formation of chlorophyll (which is found in all green plants), however the green colour is a useful indicator that levels of certain toxins that are harmful to humans, known as glycoalkaloids, may be increased.



additionally, #2?
is this just a random list of foods as #2 is not a potato

A green potato is a rotten potato that can kill you

President Trump: "We're going after Virginia, with your crazy governor, we're going after Virginia. They want to take your Second Amendment. You know that, right? You'll have nobody guarding your potatoes."

Wait..who exactly was guarding them?

Heilung4eva you were really the pioneer in the Potato-mania
Until you brought it up no one was talking about it
Now everyone, including the POTUS is talking about Potatoes

Ok, I have an ask, I want to see a graph of the amount of Potato Memes before your thread and now
I gotta imagine it looks like this

You see the spike in 92 when QuayleGate happened



Speaking of...We Tracked Down The Kid Vice President Dan Quayle Made Misspell ďPotatoĒ  (ok this was written last year)

Heilung has owned the first half of the year and at this point has to be odds on favorite to pick up Boardie of the Year honors

Itís a shame the Awards Ceremony will probably have to be a zoom meeting this year as the Julian Roast is always great and I enjoy seeing boardies with their dates (mostly)

the Julian Roast is always great
The one upside to concerts probably being kaput for 2020 is this is likely the year Taylor Swift finally attends and gives me a good tongue lashing.

I am a potato guardian. This is the only life I have known. Here is my tale, one no doubt familiar to you, just as the concept of a person who guards potatoes in Virginia is familiar.
