up from the deep, twenty storeys high...

This is evidently old news, but check out the size of this monster sweet potato.

Got it from Tesco's a few weeks back and only discovered it in the cupboard yesterday, but it seems perfectly OK.

Oversized vegetables are all terrifically interesting in their own right, of course, but the most interesting thing about this one is the name Tesco have chosen to give it: Spudzilla! They must have been wetting themselves in the advertising department when they managed to sneak that one through.

For comparison purposes I've put a standard size potato next to it; you can see the difference. I suppose one might think of the standard one as Spudzooky to its larger uncle. You remember him, right?

Anyway, the point is, one of these big orange starchy fuckers can be chopped up into enough chips for several people. Something of a "monster" feed, in fact, ahahahahaha. Oh, please yourselves.
