It all started when a guy with a dream posted his goal on Kickstarter — to raise $10 to make a bite to eat.
“Basically I’m just making potato salad. I haven’t decided what kind yet,” he wrote (h/t to DeathAndTaxes).
But then the money started coming in, he expanded the project. More than $35 and he’d make a quadruple batch, and at $75 he’d host a party.
It still remains to be seen how he’s going to deliver on promised rewards for all those people — for only $3 you get a bite of potato salad, while a $10 donation gets you the choice of an ingredient.
Things have built from there — as of his last stretch goal added as his campaign before it reached the $3,000 mark, he promised:
“My kitchen is too small! I will rent out a party hall and invite the whole internet to the potato salad party (only $10 and above will be allowed in the kitchen)! The internet loves potato salad! Let’s show them that potato salad loves the internet!!”
Sounds like someone’s going to be making a lot of bites of potato salad when this whole thing is said and done. He might need some dedicated potato salad elves — and everyone knows their services are not cheap.
