Best of Kickstarter: $35,000 Potato Salad

kickstarter-potatosalad

It’s been 5 days since Zack Danger Brown launched a Kickstarter with the sole mission to make potato salad for the first time. His original goal was $10. More than 3,000 backers have pledged a total of $35,000 and counting.

As more money comes he adds new stretch goals; things like “better mayonnaise” and “call a chef to get a better recipe”. It appears there will now be at least 4 potato salads made, one of which will be vegan. Pledging even $3 gets you a bite of the potato salad mailed to you and he’ll say your name out loud while he makes it. This is pretty much the best Kickstarter ever. Support it here.

Thanks to @elrizzy for the heads up.

    Meanwhile, there are actual kickstarters that need support to initiate positive projects that get no publicity or financial support otherwise?

    Honestly? This is what you want people to throw their money at?

  • So much money? For what? This money could be used for other purposes, there are many people who desperately need ..
