You're too right. Potatoes are taking over everything. Found one sprouting in the asparagus patch the other day, and this morning they're trying to hide in the carrot patch! Damn them!! BTW, potato DNA in humans is easy to spot. You can see mine right around my middle where my waist used to be. Damn them!

This was a very fun, engaging, clever piece, John! Love it!!!
