On Wednesday, Roberta Bernardo, a 19-year-old radio and TV student from São Paulo, Brazil, went to the supermarket.
And that’s when she saw this potato. “She looked like a little baby with little arms,” Bernardo told
So Bernardo took her home and gave her a bath
And then gave her a cute little outfit. Bernardo said that the potato’s name is “Potato”.
Here’s Potato all made up and looking fresh.
Bernardo shared the photos of Potato on Facebook, where they’ve been shared thousands of times in the last day. She said she’s shocked by the impact Potato had on Facebook.
“Life is ephemeral,” Bernardo said. “I believe she will live these moments as if they were the last, enjoying the laurels of fame.”
There is now a fan page for Potato. The page is called “Amiga Batata” and it’s amazing.
