We’ve all been there… spotting a piece of produce that strongly resembles a friend or random cartoon character, only to dismiss it as unbuyable. But when 19-year-old Brazilian student, Roberta Bernardo, spots a root vegetable with a potential face, she seizes the opportunity.
Roberta found a potato that, let’s face it, most of us would’ve walked past giggling. But what she did was take that malformed potato home, bathed it, gave it some eyes, and named it Batata (Potato in Portuguese).
She also set Batata on a series of adventures, most of which you can find on the potato’s Facebook page. Yes, an anthropomorphic potato has a Facebook page. One that you know you want to follow.
