    It’s here, and the whole internet is invited!

    Sure, you’ve probably seen other viral Kickstarter Campaigns about inventive new bike lights, iPod Nano watchbands, or maybe some fancy schmancy bottle opener. But today, we bring to you the only Kickstarter campaign that really matters. The campaign for a great potato salad.

    At the time of this writing, this campaign is at ~500% of its campaign goal of 10$. That’s right you guys, $5,000! For potato salad! Surprised? Well so was Zack Brown, the person who started this Kickstarter!

  • The campaign has done so well that Zack decided to make “stretch goals” including live streaming the making of the potato salad. And now, he’s going to rent out a party hall and invite the whole internet to the potato salad party. That’s right, the ENTIRE internet!

    So, are you going to contribute to Zack’s potato salad dreams? Who knows what stretch goals he’ll come up with next!

  • It looks like this could be the most expensive joke in all of internet history!
