Potato Madness

this_is_a_potatoThis is a potato.

Bake it, and you have a healthy, nutritious dinner that you can serve your family and feel good about.

That seems simple enough.

However, the potato would like to clarify some potential confusion about its culinary uses:

Make it from scratch in the morning, and you are not just a good mom, but an excellent mom.

You can’t really eat them for dinner, unless you’re at IHOP or celebrating Chanukah.

It is never for breakfast, except maybe if you are on a roadtrip and there’s nothing else available. If so, we will pretend it never happened.

Serve it for breakfast any other time, and you are a bad mom.

It is fine for lunch, though.

You can never, ever serve it for breakfast. In fact, you are a bad mom if you even think about serving it for breakfast.

It is not a meal at all!

Why, this potato is so unhealthy, you should probably never eat it at all.


There. I hope that clears everything up.

  1. This potato has been peeled, boiled, and smashed. Often served with a meat-based topping, it is not a breakfast food, but can be eaten at any other times. It is also a holiday potato.

    This is just the skin of a potato, fried and topped with things like bacon. This potato should not be eaten.

  2. Are you saying that community/culture requires adherence to arbitrary rules? Feature, or bug? Say it isn’t so!!
