No potato should be expected to be perfect. Inspired by the ugly fruit movement, Hasbro has collaborated with U.K. grocery chain Asda to release a rather wonky Mr. Potato Head doll being auctioned off on eBay to raise money for FareShare, a food distribution nonprofit. FareShare pulls food that would otherwise be thrown away and donates it to community groups that prepare meals for people in need.
The lopsided version of the Hasbro toy is not only a bit more accurate to the potatoes in your pantry, he’s also pretty darn cute (in a three-legged dog kind of way). Only one of these special edition spuds is being offered up at the moment and the going rate is $316 (and dropping?).
