Questions I would ask my readership, if I had one

(1) Is green on a potato a sign that the whole thing has gone poisonous, or only the green bit? I.e. if I cut off the green, is the rest okay to eat? Or is the whole green potato = poisonous just an urban myth? (Guess I'll find out after dinner.)

(2) Does my bum look big in this?

#2. Only if you want it to. Otherwise, it looks little.

#1 is actually not urban legend. We researched this last year. Potatoes are related to deadly nightshade, but the green bits typically do not have enough toxin to do serious harm. What's more, cutting it out does work.

Anyway, if you're reading this, a) you sruvived, and b) you have a readership.
