  • Serious Potato Warning!

    You guys know I loves me some spuds, but I have developed numerous little bumps all over my back and stomach over the last few months. I thought they would go away, but they didn't. I made an appointment with a specialist. After hours of painful tests and needle jabs, it turns out that the bumps are a serious, but common side-effect of eating too many potatoes! It's a condition called "Potato-induced epigeniticity toxicosis", basically, I have turned into a giant potato and the bumps are eyes sprouting as it gets closer to spring. I now have to spend the next six months buried in dirt while the eyes sprout and continue their life cycle. My big problem now is figuring out what to name all my new kids.

    Dont name them, that will just make it harder to eat them!

      Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

        Bummer, Otzi. A similar thing has happened to me, but with salmon. I have this urge to go upstream and spawn.

              This is funny because a couple weeks ago I made several chicken dishes and thought to myself, "Geez, pretty soon I'm going to start clucking!"

                          Honestly, no, I didn't make the connection this was April Fool's Day.

                          I think everyone knew it was joke though. That much was pretty obvious ;-)

                            I had a similar affliction when eating a lot of taters, but instead of eyes sprouting, I just turned into a 316 pound human potato.

                            Exhibit A:



                            May not be entirely potato related, as there was nothing off-limits in my old WOE except fish, and besides nothing being off limits, there generally were no limits.

                            I'm at 199 pounds as of Sunday morning, and started the potato hack today to see if the next ten pounds are easier than the last ten pounds, which took four months and a lot more effort than any other period since I went primal-ish in November 2011.

                            EDIT: Me last January at 209 pounds:
