Spud Update

The mystery of my sweet, sleeping spuds has been discovered. Kevin researched the reason potatoes are covered at night and found that prolonged exposure to light, especially fluorescent light, causes greening. He found lots of studies published by the American Potato Journal and the American Journal of Potato Research that reference this problem.

I still like my vision of tucked in spuds dreaming of becoming mashed with cream or made into devil's starchy fingers better.

Do you think there are back issues of the American Potato Journal? 'Cuz my birthday is just around the corner...

Okay, I didn't cite sources, but I would like to point out that I did provide the correct reason in a comment on the post...

You are going to have to be graded down for not being specific enough about what actually happens to the spuds and not citing sources. You will only receive partial credit for your potato grade.

However, there is good news! The future purchase of potato product for the instructor will count as extra credit.

Does a Mr. Potato Head count as a potato product?
