How many old science fiction movies have you seen that start with something mutating due to space radiation, then eating a good deal of the Earth? Well, in this case the Chinese are eating the mutants, space potatoes that is! Purple and sweet, these other worldly spuds come from seeds that were zapped by radiation aboard a Chinese rocket ship. Now the question is, when will the tater monsters turn on their glutinous masters? 2012, of course, as demonstrated by the fact that potatoes originated in South America, where the Mayans lived!
