If I was Caligula...I would build a potato palace

Ah, glorious potato. Legend has it that it was not merely fire that Prometheus brought to us, but in fact, the roasted potato that was stolen from the Gods themselves.

If I was Caligula, I would certainly eat potatoes in gold foil nested in the uterus of dolphin. I would also eat them fried, sticking them into the noses and mouths of the heads which litter my palace. I would eat them baked with butter from the royal cows and salt from the Adriatic. Glorious potato, you bless us with your wealth and delicious flavor!
