The main value of potatoes is how little labor they take to farm and consume.  Chop up a potato and put the pieces in the ground, and the pieces grow into many potatoes.  Toss a potato into the fire and wait a bit and you have a meal.  Plus potatoes plants are hardy and harvested potatoes store well.

Due to the minimal amount of labor needed to produce a lot of calories, potatoes have been a huge boon for Western civilization for the last 500 years.  But now, with automation taking over farming, labor is mattering less than other factors, and crops like soy are taking over the role of the potato.

Time to launch my new non-profit, Taters for Tots!

It's like Toys for Tots, but instead of giving toys, we give potatoes. Fun to play with AND edible!

Hmmm...FARK isn't letting me post a video.  Let me try again:

FARK forbids the original video, so I had to use this fan-edit instead.

You could at least use the original that actually has the video synced to the audio.
