I'm just a common tater

The sale of purple potatoes is causing quite a stir the length and breadth of Christendom today as healthful housewives are purchasing the puce produce by the pan-load.

The reason for the sudden interest in the beta version of this newly tried and tested spud is its purported healthy properties, as compared to the usual white potatoes that we have been used to.

The magic ingredient being Anthocyanins, which have potent antioxidant properties and some studies have shown that it has a positive effect on blood vessels and reducing blood pressure, although not for one local man who was enraged to find his ham, eggs and chips dinner sullied by the inclusion of the new purple pretender to the throne of his beloved King Edward.

"Why do they have to keep messing with our food? I liked my fatty white fries. This always bloody happens" said the irate white van man upon getting home from work and seeing his dinner, "they keep messing up all my favourite English dinners, they messed around with my pizza, my curry and now my French fries, why cant they leave good English cooking as it should be?"

Upon hearing his complaints, the angry mans lady wife said "Is that all he has got to say about the dinner I cooked for him? Bastard! I'll bloody well give him purple potatoes!"
