How the Irish Saved Civilization

I must say, the potato is one of the most versatile and fruitful (pardon the pun) vegetables (or any food product, for that matter) in the world. Sure, rice is up there near the top. But all kinds of rice (white, fried, dirty, brown, etc) all essentially manifest themselves in the same way. But potatoes? They can be mashed, hashed, baked, sweet, french fried, totted (is that a word?), etc. The possibilities really are endless.
