What we have to assume started as a joke has apparently won over the internet. Zach Danger Brown, launched a Kickstarter project to fund potato salad. Seriously. All this dude wanted to do was make potato salad and according to his project description, he hasn't decided what kind yet.
The original goal was $10 just to buy the ingredients for said potato salad, but after two days the project already has 324 backers and has raised $1,608, which means it's over 16,000 percent funded. After day one, several stretch goals were added to the project such as making two potato recipes, using better mayonnaise, live streaming the construction of the potato salad, and renting out a party hall for a potato salad party.
The pledge levels are just as entertaining as the stretch goals, pledge $3 and Zach will send you a taste of the potato salad. For two extra bucks, aka a $5 pledge, you'll get to choose an ingredient to add to the potato salad, as long as it's "potato salad appropriate". The highest pledge available is $50, but you'll get all the rewards as well as a book of potato salad recipes inspired from backers around the world.
There's still 27 days left for the project, at this rate Zach Danger Brown will be making potato salad for days.
