Stop me if you’ve heard this story before: Boy gets hungry, wants potato salad. All he wants in the world is potato salad. Has no potato salad. Boy meets internet. Boy asks internet for $10 to make Potato Salad. Internet gives him over $8,000.

You’ve never heard that one before? Well, probably because it’s fucking insane and I love it. Zack Danger Brown, the man so dangerous, Danger is his literal middle name, put up a Kickstarter campaign last Thursday with the sole purpose of wanting to make a potato salad. The mission statement? “Basically, I’m just making potato salad. I haven’t decided what kind yet.”

The Goal? $10. Reasonable.

The result? As of right now, it’s at $8,857. Soon enough, it will be over $9,000.

You are probably saying to yourself, “What? $9,000?! There’s no WAY that can be right.”

But it’s right. Never underestimate what people will do for good Potato salad.

Now that so many people have backed the project, he’s renting out a party hall and inviting anyone who donated over $10 to watch him make his potato salad. For $20, you get a potato-salad themed Haiku and a signed jar of Mayonnaise. For just $5 more, you get a hat, and for a whopping $35, you get a T-Shirt. And people are FILMING THIS event. Take a look at the Kickstarter, you won’t regret it. Seriously, you won’t.
