This Spud’s for You

Sending Your Correspondence via Potato

A057f075d659b019bee21160faf0c225 They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

So a potato must be worth...

Find out with PotatoParcel, a local operation that’s shipping potatoes with personalized messages to recipients around the country, online now for all your tuber-related gifting.

This is the story of a guy. A guy with an idea. An idea to anonymously send your friends, your enemies or anyone else a potato. A potato that’s personalized with a message of your choosing. Because... well, why the hell not.

All you need to do: hop on the website, pick a large- or medium-size potato and input your message—140 characters for the former, 100 for the latter. It’ll be handwritten on the potato and sent on its way in a nondescript package.

Here’s a quick brainstorming session to get you started.

“Congratulations on your wedding/promotion/baby/other. Here’s a potato.”

“Happy belated birthday. I’m sorry your gift is late. I’m also sorry it’s a potato.”

“If found, please return to Idaho.”

“Congrats on going carb-free.”

“Bake at 400 degrees for one hour.”
