YouTube on Peeling Tubers

Do you say potayto or potahto? Either way, here's a great video on peeling potatoes (tubers) AFTER they're boiled:



Aside from its practicality about how to peel potatoes, this video resonates with me because of its reference to a show that mystified me as a child: Gilligan's Island. I loved the relationships between its quirky castaway characters, their myriad of failed attempts to leave their existence on a deserted island, and the way the show positioned itself so that you always knew that these castaways had it way better on their island than in any civilized society. And now I love the way "Marianne" shows us how to peel a tuber in true Gilligan's Island style!
