In the age of the smartphone telling friends and family about the tedious shit that happened in your day is easier and cheaper than ever, whilst also allowing Silicon Valley to scoop up all your data and sell it to the NSA.
Despite this one entrepreneur has put together a service for sending messages via the medium of potato – and these spuds are 100 percent British rather than those despicable foreign taters stealing the livelihoods of our countryveg.
Speaking in a YouTube video, Adrian Nantchev said he started PotatoInThePost.com as a means of allowing people to stand out from the crowd.
It’s not entirely clear if he’s trolling.
Prices range from £5 to £6, with the spuds arriving within 3 days at all British addresses. Nantchev will have to compete with the Americans at Potatoparcel.com, who also run a service in Blighty.
