I thought that I had seen the most pathetic attempt to crowdfund an endeavor when I came across a Kickstarter to create Twerk Island. Okay, so I had… this in no way compares to that. This is pathetic, yes, but equally brilliant.
A guy by the name Zack Danger Brown, yeah you can’t make this stuff up, has raised over $35,000.00 to make potato salad. You read that right… thirty-five thousand dollars… about a year’s salary in many industries. And this he’s raised, in a day and a half. The story has been picked up by C-Net, the local news, and BuzzFeed, among other outlets.
You thought your Tuesday was bad? Just think about Zack, standing in his kitchen licking a mustard covered fork and boiling potatoes, wiping the leftovers off the counter with dollar bills. Then think about the millions of people who have no money to to real causes because they funded potato salad. Now your Tuesday is really bad.
Zack, I’ve gotta hand it to you man, you’re brilliant.
