Caen: A woman who was away from home for three months was surprised when she found out that her home had been taken over by potatoes. Donna Porée, from Caenin France, had bought a €2.50 (Rs 210) bag of potatoes from a supermarket back in March. When the lockdown was announced in the country, she decided to spend the self-isolation time with her boyfriend on the other side of the town.
Donna, 22, left with her flat with the necessary stuff and just like everybody else, she didn't care much about the sack of potatoes on the kitchen shelf. However, when she returned home after three months, she found out that the flat didn't belong to her anymore. Potatoes had taken over it.
"As I opened the front door, I noticed a strange shape at the back of the kitchen. As the light was off and shutters down, I didn't realise it was the potatoes. It was only after opening the shutters that I took note of this extraordinary sight," Donna was quoted as saying by LADbible.
The potatoes didn't like being left alone for months so they decided to sprout shoots. Several long pink tentacles broke out of the sack and shot off to the walls. They even broke through the joints of the furniture.
