Should we be suspicious? Or should we trust the reality of this young woman’s friendship with a potato she dressed up in clothes?

BuzzFeed Brazil brings us the story of 19-year-old Roberta Bernardo and her potato. (“Bernardo said that the potato’s name is ‘Potato,’” BuzzFeed writes.) Bernardo’s Facebook post about Potato, whom she found at a supermarket

has received thousands of shares and likes. “She is richer and more powerful now,” Bernardo tells BuzzFeed. It is only a matter of time before Potato calls out Essena O’Neill on YouTube and stars in a movie with Nash Grier.

Hoje eu tava no mercado aí eu vi essa batata e ela era tão fofa então eu trouxe ela pra casa e lavei e vesti. Eu amo minha batata.
