Potato Salad Anyone?

For those of you that don't know (which would probably be all of you), Dean Koontz is one of my favorite authors. I'm always lying in wait for the next book to come out in paperback. Which, come to think of it, there should be a new one in paperback pretty soon!

Anyway, I "like" his Facebook Page, and I saw this post from him recently:

"As of today, more than one million friends have joined my Facebook page. I'd like to meet you all. I'm thinking about a picnic. It'll have to be summer of 2012 because I'll need time to make 400,000 pounds of potato salad. I'll start tomorrow."

1) That's a lot of "friends". 2) I cannot even fathom what 400,00 pounds of potato salad looks like. and 3) Um, wouldn't it just be a wee bit easier to make a potluck? Although, coordinating that potluck would be very un-fun.


  1. Im wondering how you would keep that much potato salad fresh until summer 2012 and you would need a lot of bowls

  2. Not to mention a massive picnic area...

  3. Mynx - I was wondering that, too. That's why I'm thinking potluck might just be the better way to go.

    CWMartin - He might have to hold it over the course of a week!

  4. Oh, a potluck wouldn't be too bad: If your last name starts with A or B, bring salad. If your last name starts with C or D, bring paper plates.... Etc., etc. ;-) CW Martin is right. You would have to have the picnic in a stadium or something.

  5. I love Dean Koontz as well, great escapist reading.

    Love his picnic idea, who is bringing the beer?

  6. Soapbox - Ahh, yes, the alphabet routine. That would work great, actually!

    brahm - I swear that man needs to write faster. lol As for the beer, we'll have to decide which letters of the alphabet are in charge of liquor! lol
