My friends have looked at me oddly for months, when I’ve occasionally uttered “STARVING!” and peered around expectantly, hoping they’d get the reference. I know I sent around the link to the story from which it comes, but chances are the site was getting slammed at the time. It was linked off of Making Light and several other places, so my friends probably gave up in an impatient 404-rage and never tried again.
ANYWAY. Lori has recently discovered the hilarity that is the sweet potato story, and now, because I am a good friend and I love you all, I link it here for you:
