Who’s Leaving Bowls of Mashed Potatoes Around Jackson, Mississippi?

 

Mysterious bowls of mashed potatoes are popping up on cars, porches and mailboxes in a Jackson, Mississippi, neighborhood.

“We don’t know if someone is just playing a prank or if someone just had a lot of leftovers,” Jordan Lewis says of her Belhaven neighborhood.

But neighbor Sebastian Bjernegard has a different theory. “Some people were thinking maybe the mashed potatoes were poisoned to kill animals,” he says, adding that he almost stepped into a bowl of potatoes on Tuesday. “I didn’t taste it. I have a three-second rule, so I didn’t touch it. But some people were worried.”

Meanwhile, another resident, Michaela Lin, tells the AP some of potato-finders have connections to a local private Christian university, which may be a clue. In any case, Lewis adds that Belhaven is known to be a quirky place, where locals have been known to decorate road signs and fill potholes with Christmas trees.
