By now you've all heard about the million dollar potato. I bet that some of you out there can take a better potato photo and I am willing to put up a $100 Amazon gift card to prove it. Post your potato photos here to enter. We'll leave this up for two or three weeks so that everyone who wants to can enter (Let's close this on leap day). We'll have one of the moderators pick the best and the winner will be sent a $100 Amazon redemption code via PM.

Let's have fun with this.

Great shot and with only one entry you'd be the winner by default. Just one week to go.

No rules. Any sort of photo with a potato. It can even include the Nikon airplane.
