Farmer attributes 100m win to lucky potato
A human interest story by Velda Twee
Perfect health, long life and a hundred million credit fortune could all be yours, if only you had a lucky potato. That's the claim of Grain farmer Jiles Therrband, 96, anyhow, who attributes all of these virtues to his possession of 'Larry', a Holstein Pink potato. Larry always nestles next to Jiles' skin as he directs the Cyberplow over his 600-hectare plot on Bex, and it was Larry's stem that Jiles used to select his winning numbers from the Grishund Racing News. Will Larry continue to be Jiles' companion? 'Arrr. But maybes I'll givvum a gold jacket to wear, loik'. A truly inspiring tale.
