Doncha just love Wikipaedia?

Quote from wiki article on "Mashed Potatoes"

Mashed potato is a dish prepared by mashing boiled potatoes."
Talk about defining the bleeding obvious.

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

Well, I suppose you have to cover everything, even the most obvious.

So I have been doing it all wrong. Who knew you had to boil them first? Now I know. I wonder if there is a You Tube for boiling water?

Believe it or not, there are folks that would look for that answer.

I find Wiki to be very helpful at times. Especially during a spirited debate at the local watering hole.
Shuts em up real quick unless you are dealing with a redneck that has no idea what that little square thing in your hand is and would not trust anything that came from that little square thing we call a smart phone.

No more "I will check on this and get back to you".
Pull it up and settle it on the spot.
Some get mad when you debunk something they have believed all their lives.
