Gladys: To Marge, I leave my potato chips that resemble celebrities. They're all here -- Otto von Bismarck, Maurice Chevalier, right down to Jay Leno. These chips were my children, Marjorie -- take special care of them.

That won't protect you from the bottles of conditioner.

Just a heads up message in a bottle.

Duck and chips anyone? Mother's shock at finding potato shaped like duckling

April 20, 2012 | ISSUE 48•17

BEARWOOD - Mother Gail Roberts reached for a potato in the back of her food cupboard - and pulled out a baby duck.

The mother-of-one was shocked to find a weeks-old potato which had morphed to bear an uncanny resemblance to a duck.

Gail's husband Andy, 36, of Bearwood, Birmingham, said: 'We all stood there looking at it. The amazing thing was that it had feet and tiny wings as well.'

This is why all potatoes should be grounded for safety.

Slow news day in the UK?

Let this be the beginning of a new
meme!


From this day forth...

If someone ever picks up an object, in anger, and throws it at another person, we shall use the exclamation 'Potato!' as a warning to avoid the object.

I will not accept any royalties for this brilliant idea.

You guys are looking at this all wrong!

They're making a great case for ducks actually being vegetables!
This means that you can now serve 812oz. supersteaks with duck on the side and ti'll be HEALTHY! Because ducks are VEGGIES! It's official! Hell, it's BRITISH!

/yeah, this could go south real fast...

You're supposed to do it in the fridge for safest results, water bath is actually just as bad as counter...

And yes, it's going to take longer that way, but at least ducks are way smaller than turkeys... so maybe 2 days.
