No, it was just stupid, even if you meant it as a joke. Yawn. But, your silly potatoes triggered some memories about German contribution. See how old masters do it and learn, young man:
Before and during dark times of communist martial law 1981 the food shortages became dramatic in Poland. My parents were happy when they bought a giant sack of potatoes
and stored it in the basement, I helped them to transport it from the befriended farmer. I had other problems on mind then, so that sack and my parents` glee were like from outer space to me. I still can`t believe one could be able to enjoy such simple things in life.
Alarmed by the media and Solidarity activists, thousands of individual Germans, charity organisations and churches from West Germany sent millions of parcels with food, clothes, medicine to Poland. They were called solidarity parcels.
Thank you, Germans.
