One man's Potato is another's PC

You've heard of cars being lemons right? Well one fellow in Berlin angrily returned a PC he bought in a store because, as he claimed, when he opened the casing, he found potatos instead of computer parts.

The store quickly replaced the produce-filled PC, but became suscpicious when, a few days later, the gentleman returned with the second computer, saying he no longer needed one and wanted his money back.

Sure enough, when they opened the computer, they found more potatos.

The police are now investigating the man for fraud and hoping to "mash" his potato scheme (insert groan here).
