Holy Potato

Cranky Media Guy wants to know "Who in the press can we implore to PLEASE MAKE THIS NONSENSE STOP?"

He's referring to the most recent finding of a holy potato. From thelocal.de:

A potato destined for the fryer has become a holy relic to some Berliners after a woman cut it open only to find an image of a cross inside.
Birgül Balta, 49, was cutting potatoes for French fries at her home in Berlin's Charlottenburg district when the cross-shaped cavity inside one of the spuds stopped her cold.
"There was a strange sort of crackling sound like pressure was being released. When she opened it she found that - two perfect crosses," Balta's husband, Robert White, told The Local.

Of course, I assume Cranky knows the answer to his question. There is no one we can appeal to. The nonsense will never stop. Ever.

Yeah, it was really kind of a rhetorical scream for help.

How about Jesus in an ultrasound?


Potatoes, trees, wombs - it's just impossible to escape the guy.

But... but... by slicing it they could make Holy Potato Chips! Think of the eBay possibilities.

A genuine chip off the Holy Spud

Cranky, why would you want the nonsense to stop? What would entertain us then?

I hope they'll save some eyes from this tater. If you could breed potatoes that consistently produced this pattern, slices of them could serve as all-natural communion wafers.

Things like this get media attention because the media just does not want to cover anything important - like the shoes I'm wearing.
