First-time potato-salad-maker Zack Danger Brown figured Kickstarter was precisely the place to fund-raise $10 if he wanted to try making a bowl of the stuff. It turns out he was right, and now, with 25 days left, the joke-gone-viral is officially out of control, having topped $9,600 with promises to rent a venue for a big potato salad party and make some novelty spuds-themed trucker hats. What was initially fun and games, however, may end up causing a headache: Per Kickstarter terms, Brown has to say every backer's name out loud while making salad some 1,300 people so far as well as figure out how to send "a bite" to people in places as far-flung as Reykjavik and Bucharest. Right now, that in particular isn't looking very hopeful: "I need to look up shipping prices," he says. "I don't really know anything about shipping out of the country." [Kickstarter via CNET]
