We didn't even know there was a "lobster world series."

No, people don't pit lobsters against one another in a tiny death arena, they cook them!

Mashed Potato Vending Machines Exist

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueScience!

Science has done it, we can totally stop now.

Cancel all remaining experiments and stuff, it's over guys. It was a great run, but someone has reached the finish line — the mashed potato vending machine is a real thing.

Any further attempts at science are futile, because it does gravy, too!

While this seems very popular in places like Singapore, right now they don't really have plans to bring them to the 7-11's in U.S.A… yet!

Hold onto your butts, and check out the video (above) for some weird potato action!

Filed under: FoodRecipes

Parmesan Latke

Oh yes, the holiday festivities are STILL going (Holla at the Festival of Lights!), and we have the perfect recipe for you!!

Check out these delish looking Zucchini Parmesan Latkes, recipe courtesy of Kosher In The Kitch!

Here you go!

Ingredients:
2 large russet potatoes, grated
2 medium zucchini, grated
1/2 cup of grated parmesan
1/2 cup of chopped scallions
3 eggs
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 cup fine panko crumbs
oil for frying

Directions:
Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the garlic, salt & pepper. Then grate the zucchini and potatoes into a separate bowl. Squeeze the zucchini and potatoes in a kitchen towel to remove all liquid. Add grated zucchini, potato, scallions, panko crumbs & parmesan to the egg batter and combine well. (if you find the batter is too loose, add some flour, about 2 tablespoons to thicken it up) Heat up a large non stick frying pan with oil over medium heat. Using 1/4 cup measuring cup, cook the batter in batches and fry until golden brown, about 3 – 4 minutes each side. Serve warm with sour cream or apple sauce.

MMMMM! Sounds fab!

We aren't too sure about that sour cream personally, but that apple sauce sounds mighty fine!

Enjoy!

He swings.

A crowd member yells "MASHED POTATO" at the top of his lungs.

Scene.

Ha! Seriously, check out this video to hear the most ridiculous shout in golf history!

Hasbro Introduces Skinny Mr. Potato

Filed under: FoodHealth

Hasbro Introduces Skinny Mr. Potato

It took him decades, but Mr. Potato Head finally lost some weight! Congrats! LOL!

Hasbro has been trying to establish Mr. Potato Head as a “health” symbol since 2005 when he was featured in the U.S. Potato Board's "Healthy Mr. Potato Head" campaign.

While the sentiment behind this is good, we think this is a silly idea.

How many kids out there are looking up to Mr. Potato Head as a role model? Zero.

But it’s still a step in the right direction!

60-Day Potato Diet Draws To An End

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueDietsFood

60-Day Potato Diet Draws To An End

60 days. Potatoes and only potatoes for every meal.

That sounds awful, but it’s exactly what the head of the Washington State Potato Commission Chris Voigt did in an attempt to prove that potatoes aren’t bad for you. In fact, Chris lost 21 pounds and dropped 67 points from his cholesterol count!

Chris’s main goal in going on this diet was to attempt to influence federal proposals to bar or limit potatoes in some national programs, such as lunch programs to feed underprivileged kids, because they feel that they are bad for people. He says that he won’t consider the stunt a success unless he see some reversals in those policies.

Said Chris:

"If we are successful in convincing USDA to put potatoes in the programs, then I'd call it a 100 percent success. But it's been great that the publicity and the general awareness the public has now and how it's drawn some attention to the nutritional value of potatoes. I just consider that gravy."

We’re unsure whether Chris’ potato diet will have any effect on national policy, he does have a point — potatoes, like almost any food, can be fine in moderation. Potatoes may have lower nutritional values than most vegetables, but they aren’t BAD for you.

Maybe the national policy should be changed to just reduce the amount of potatoes in lunches? What do U think?

Man Vows To Eat Only Potatoes For Two Months

Filed under: DietsFood

Man Vows To Eat Only Potatoes For Two Months

The fact that somebody is eating nothing but potatoes for two months is bad enough, but Chris Voigt, an executive director of the Washington State Potato Commission, has pledged to eat the potatoes with no toppings!

And in case you were wondering, the number of potatoes he will have to eat a day to meet his caloric needs is 20!

The point Voigt is attempting to prove is that potatoes are healthy for you, which is a claim that isn’t mainstream among fitness experts.

"I want to show the world that the potato is so healthy that you could live off them alone for an extended period of time without any negative impact to your health," Voigt explained.

We admire his devotion to potatoes, we might recommend at least a little salt!
