You bet it’s solid

It was a modest crowdsourcing request: ten bucks to help make a batch of potato salad.

That was the third of July. By now, it’s grown far, far beyond that. At $1000, it was announced that the actual production of the potato salad would be livestreamed. What can they do at $30,000? It’s a shame the Ross Sisters are gone; they’d be perfect for this event.

Speaking of the Ross Sisters, the last couple of frames of their magnum opus remind me of the last couple of frames of this.

    This is why I’m neither rich nor famous. I don’t come up with stuff like this.

    I’ve always wanted to try making Baked Alaska. Well, dammit, I could have done a kickstarter for that.

    Still, there’s something either very PoMo or very Dada about total strangers paying a guy to make potato salad. If it didn’t actually happen I’d think it was something from The Simpsons.
