2008 – The International Year of the Potato

No, I’m not joking!

According to the United Nations, 2008 is the International Year of the Potato, and it even has its own website – http://www.potato2008.org/. The BBC News website has a rather nice photo gallery on potatoes at the moment.

Lots of potatoes! (BBC)

Perhaps they could have Mike Oldfield’s Tuber-lal Bells as the signature tune ?
