      Chips with Everything

      A new genus of giant potato has been discovered growing in
      the Florida Everglades.
      The flesh is slightly orange in colour and is more like a
      sweet potato than a King Edward.
      The tubas grow up to six foot across. The leaves are so large they
      can be seen from outer space on google earth.
      Scientists are investigating if this is connected to the prehistoric
      giant rat (which was vegetarian).

      So, that'll feed the average American for about two days then?

      Unfortunately not.
      The plant self-destructs once light touches the tuba
      or the leaves get too large.
      Botanists are examining the remains.
      They believe the plant only regenerates every 10 thousand years.
      Which may explain why the giant rat died out.

      Unfortunately, I can no longer access the site
      sayno2potatoe.com
      I blame Sky.
