Hump Day Snack: How Big Is Your Potato?

With St. Patrick's Day coming up, we started thinking about Ireland. And then we started thinking about potatoes. And then, naturally, we starting thinking about whether or not a website existed where you can hold a potato up to your monitor and figure out its mass, energy and cooking time. If you experience a similarly peculiar stream of consciousness, browse over to howbigismypotato.com.

Though it looks like there are several qualifiers that may affect the data (does it work exclusively with white potatoes? does the cook time mean boiling, baking or something else? What if your potato looks like Shrek?), there's something about measuring potatoes with an interactive website that never* gets old.

*We only tested this for about 15 seconds.
