World's Largest Potato? (Ugliest for Sure)
A Lebanese farmer found this monster tuber on his land near Tyre.
"I've been working the land since I was a boy, and it's the first time I've seen anything like it," now-famous farmer Khamil Semhat told AFP.
He looks pretty proud of his find, and swears he didn't use any crazy fertilizers to stimulate the growth of the hideous thing, which looks like an Elephant Man version of a yam.
It weighs almost 25 pounds, and might make the Guinness Book of World Records for biggest potato.
