Garth Johnson of Extreme Craft may finally help us understand what hardcore taters look like. (SFW)

We all love us some taters. The folks of Humboldt County, California expressed their love with a long running decorated potato contest at their county fair last month. Via Craftzine blog.

That's somehow tamer than I'd been led to expect.

Thus proving that there are consequences to long-term marijuana use.

Finally! More proof I can show my husband that all county fairs have the "weird collections" area.
He didn't believe me when I tried to explain this when we saw the year's worth of collie hair collection at our local fair. He was deeply freaked out.

There's a decorated vegetables contest at the Oregon State Fair as well. It's pretty cute (and for kids.)

My god. With ponies. That's seriously hardcore.

Cute stuff, but I still don't think we've found those elusive hard core taters yet.

A hand mirror and a normal range of flexibility is all it takes to find them.

Wow, I grew up going to this county fair, and I absolutely cannot recall ever seeing this contest. My loss.

This self-link is for humor and to specify that the offer still stands, MeFi--unless these here California taters can be my hardcore taters. In which case I am keeping them.

Here I thought we were talking about..(snort...) C'mon don't make me say it. (blushing)
