Sqrl’s Lead Developer Is Crowdfunding Potato Salad Right Now, And It Is Amazing

It seems you can crowdfund just about anything these days, from payment of your medical bills to oddly-named children's books about pit bulls.

It's entirely unclear why Zack "guy who will be making the potato salad" Brown turned to Kickstarter to make a $10 potato salad, nor why he thought it would run a mere $10 (maybe I'm a potato salad snob but mine usually runs in the $20 range, depending on whether or not I'm out of mayo), but somehow his tiny goal has exploded to over $11,000 in support as of this moment.

"I realized that I really liked potato salad, but had never made it. Then I wanted to make potato salad," Brown told CNET.

As it turns out, Brown has a connection to our pals at Sqrl, who pester your clients for info you need on your behalf. You may recall Sqrl co-founder and Big 4 refugee Craig Baldwin wrote an article for us earlier this year on why accountants can and should take over the business world.

 

Sometimes, you just need a little potato salad in your life. At this rate, Brown should have enough to feed the country by the time his campaign ends in 25 days.
