@gaemboi, I return under new name, much like potato when turn to fry
Oh let’s introduce a food crop that isn’t even native to the continent and make it our primary staple. Surely nothing bad could happen.
@pleroma77, not just their primary staple, their only staple. All their other food was forcibly made into exports, so they had nothing else to eat.
@pleroma77, One strain of crop*
@pleroma77, And it was British-landowners that forced the crop into Ireland, and then refused to produce anything else.
And then the potato died
@Intentionally Blank, potatoes are stupid
Don’t get too attached...
Poitín helped the almighty potato reach its stately sainthood along side the greats like St Barley, St Rye, St Corn, St Grape, and St Wheat.
.... and St Rice to a lesser extent.
