There Is No Potato Famine Today

There Is No Potato Famine Today

The Super Bowl ad of the farmers raising couch potatoes really struck me. Today we have an even larger crop of “Zoom potatoes.”

There are a hell of a lot of people who seem to feel that learning is perfectly adequate sitting in pajama bottoms—or without their video turned on at all—in front of a screen, half-listening to what’s being said, not interacting, and checking their email or sports scores or video game progress simultaneously. The thought of more active involvement, let alone actually going somewhere and interacting in person has become anathema.

Potatoes, of course, are starchy root vegetables subject to blight, rot, wart, powdery scab, and other diseases. Mice and other rodents will eat potatoes, but only if they can’t find more attractive food. And the “eyes” on potatoes are really sightless buds.

Carry on.
