Stunt Dieter Wins Potato Man of the Year Award

Remember Washington Potato Commission director Chris Voigt, the guy who vowed to eat literally nothing but Washington potatoes for 60 days and then deeply, deeply regretted it? (He also blogged about it and admitted to cheating, a lot.) The National Potato Council, The Grower magazine and The Packer newspaper named him Potato Man of the Year! Was there honestly any question? Is it even conceivable that someone could have done more for Washington State potatoes in 2010? In any case, a hearty congratulations to Voigt.
