In the weird realm of social media, sweet potato came out as a hero with hundreds in the audience advocating for its survival.
Social media is a lot of things. It is funny, sarcastic, sad, and sometimes downright bizarre. Only in the realm of social media, can an egg surpass American royalty, Kylie Jenner, in terms of likes. Continuing with the pattern, now social media has come to the rescue of a sweet potato. On X, previously known as Twitter, a viral post has been making rounds in which a roommate (@yikingtons) is venting their frustrations about their roommate for growing an unwanted sprouted sweet potato in their home.
Shockingly for them, something that they posted as a regular life update has gained an impressive amount of traction with people coming to the potato's rescue. Some even went ahead and made life philosophies out of it. Here are 25 quotes the post garnered that are enough to make anyone's head scratch and make them evaluate the importance of a sweet potato.
