Ten things you can do with a potato and panel discussions

I realised this morning that I am fact, a starving artist.

Ive been living on potatoes and coca cola since the fifteenth. I’m not quite sure at which point I reached the poverty line but my house mate and I had a good laugh about it this morning, after she admitted that she has been secretly stealing my sugar for weeks and we realised that we don’t have enough money between us to buy dish washing liquid or in fact, toilet rolls.

We do however, have an abundance of potatoes. These we have roasted, boiled, fried, mashed and even named. Yes, one lucky fellow survived our fervent mastications by successfully sprouting leaves and making itself far too interesting to be eaten. We put him on a shelf and named him Ned instead.

You can do your bit to help the starving artists of the world and their thieving house mates by purchasing their literary contributions as Christmas gifts for your friends or family or even yourself.
