Bob’s Lucky Potatoes

When Bob Golub arrived in New York in 1984, he began selling "lucky potatoes." He would write his name on them with a felt-tipped pen and also sprinkle them with lucky water from his grandmother's well. The price was whatever a customer wished to pay. Golub said they were popular with stockbrokers. He told the New York Times, "There are guys making $500,000 a year walking around here with lucky potatoes in their suits."

And all I ever wanted to do was sell this old fixer-upper I've got in downtown Athens. :blank:
