Melbourne, Jan 9 (ANI): An Australian farmer was left stunned when he unearthed a man-shaped spud.

Retired orcharding consultant and farmer Ernie Crouch, 73, was digging spuds when he discovered the potato with two arms, two legs, a body, head and small nose.

Sprouts stick out the top of spuds head.

Crouch was amazed to see that the potato emerged intact after being lifted from the ground by his tractor.

“He did have whiskers but they broke off,” the Mercury.com au quoted Crouch, as saying.

The spud is a Glenvale and the farmer has yet to decide whether the potato will end up as chips or used as seed. (ANI)
