Behold: a Kickstarter campaign asking for $10. To make potato salad. What was (probably) supposed to be a cute lil gag at first has blowuptuated into a $20,000-plus monster.
Pictured above: twenty-plus stacks worth of food
From the horse’s mouth:
I’m making potato salad.
Basically I’m just making potato salad. I haven’t decided what kind yet.
UPDATE: WE DID IT
$35 – I will make 4x as much Potato Salad. I know $40 isn’t 4x $10, but you guys have earned it.
$75 – Pizza Party!
$100 – I will try two different Potato Salad recipes.
UPDATE #2: ALL THE POTATO THAT’S FIT TO PRINT
We made the news. Let’s keep up the good work! New stretch goals coming soon!
UPDATE #3: WOW YOU GUYS
We’re making a lot of great progress. I think it’s time for us to think about getting hats made. I added a new donor level for people who want hats. For those who are interested the hats could look like this: http://www.zazzle.com/i_love_potato_salad_mesh_hat-148005376484063142
$250 – Better mayonnaise (from the natural foods section)
$300 – Call a chef to get a better recipe
$350 – Make way more potato salad and probably do a third recipe.
WE MADE THE NEWS!
NEW STRETCH GOALS:
$1000: I’ll do a live stream of the potato salad making
$1200: I’ll pay someone to film a thank-you video for all of my backers!
A BIG STRETCH GOAL:
We’re really tearing through these stretch goals. I honestly don’t know what is realistic anymore. So, I thought maybe we try to double the current number?
$3000: My kitchen is too small! I will rent out a party hall and invite the whole internet to the potato salad party (only $10 and above will be allowed in the kitchen)! The internet loves potato salad! Let’s show them that potato salad loves the internet!!
Now let me make a few things clear.
