Here Comes Potatoland!

A Croatian town is opening a park dedicated to ... potato!

It will include potato plant flower beds, a potato themed play park for children with swings and slides shaped like potatoes, and information plaques explaining about the different varieties of potato for visitors.

The potato was chosen as the theme of the park in Belica after it was nominated by the powerful local farmers' union.

Those darned powerful unions! Link

That is so deeply glorious - please, please, PLEASE let them have giant costumed potato mascots ambling around the park, getting one's picture taken with a giant smiling potato would make a trip to Croatia all worthwhile ...

And for a little bit of semi-relevant trivia, did you know there's a town right outside Orlando Fl whose name is an Indian word for 'the big potato'? Here's hoping that Potatoland America one day makes its mark in Apopka, Florida!
