I'm amazed at what crowd funding can accomplish. CBS6 is reporting on a man in Ohio that is crowdfunding a potato salad on kickstarter.

Originally set up with a goal of $10, the project has become successful enough to reach stretch goals such as:

Stretch Goals:

$35 - I will make 4x as much Potato Salad. I know $40 isn't 4x $10, but you guys have earned it.

$75 - Pizza Party!

$100 - I will try two different Potato Salad recipes.

$250 - Better mayonnaise (from the natural foods section)

$300 - Call a chef to get a better recipe

$350 - Make way more potato salad and probably do a third recipe.

The project, as of this posting, has reached $40,988, enough to reach new stretch goals:


$1000: I'll do a live stream of the potato salad making

$1200: I'll pay someone to film a thank-you video for all of my backers!

$3000: My kitchen is too small! I will rent out a party hall and invite the whole internet to the potato salad party (only $10 and above will be allowed in the kitchen)! The internet loves potato salad! Let's show them that potato salad loves the internet!!

There're still 24 days left in this project if you want to get in on the internet potato salad party of the ever.

Disclaimer: As far as I know, Ron 'Tater Salad' White is not a part of this project, though maybe should be considered for a new stretch goal.
