What came out of Richard Bootman’s potato chip bag is strange, no matter how you slice it.
Actually, it’s weirder because of what wasn’t sliced: a whole uncut and unpeeled potato — no chips.
Bootman, 25, of Mildenhall, UK, found the whole spud Monday morning in a package of Snackrite steak and onion crisps he purchased at an Aldi’s grocery store.
“I picked it up and it was airtight so I didn’t question it,” Bootman told BT.com. “At first I thought it was a ball of soggy crisps. When I realized what it was everyone in the office laughed -– we couldn’t believe it.”
Bootman said the most hilarious part of the experience was when he tipped the bag upside-down.
“This oily potato just fell out onto my desk,” he told the Metro. “I said to a friend, “Maybe you are expected to cook your own crisps these days.'”
