Goodbye Mister Chips


We don’t grow enough potatoes to supply Albert Bartlett, but I don’t suppose he would want them anyway, not when some of them turn out like this. I thought it would be naff to put a ruler beside it as you can easily see how big it is from the size from the bricks. It is 8″ long (excluding its tail) and weighs 1.2kg (that’s about 2 1/2lb in old money). If I was a complete idiot instead of a partial one I would probably attempt to peel it in one continuous strip… or maybe that should be in the practical exam for a degree in topology.
