You seriously can't make this up, it's really happening and REALLY funny! What in the world would give somebody the idea to make up a huge batch of mashed potatoes and then leave bowls of it all around the city? That's exactly what's happening right now in Jackson, Mississippi!
Mysterious bowls of mashed potatoes are popping up on cars, porches and mailboxes in a Jackson, Mississippi, neighborhood. “We don’t know if someone is just playing a prank or if someone just had a lot of leftovers,” Jordan Lewis says of her Belhaven neighborhood. But neighbor Sebastian Bjernegard has a different theory. "Some people were thinking maybe the mashed potatoes were poisoned to kill animals," he says, adding that he almost stepped into a bowl of potatoes on Tuesday.
“I didn’t taste it. I have a three-second rule, so I didn’t touch it. Resident, Michaela Lin, tells the AP some of potato-finders have connections to a local private Christian university, which may be a clue. In any case, Lewis adds that Belhaven is known to be a quirky place, where locals have been known to decorate road signs and fill potholes with Christmas trees.
