Do NOT disrespect potatoes!

I said it on another thread, but I don't know when we collectively decided to refer to bad players as potatoes, but the slander needs to stop. Potatoes are wonderful and one of the single most versatile foods in the world. Potatoes are the root of fries in their many shapes and sizes, chips, hash browns, they're brilliant when they're mashed or scalloped, they can be used to make pancakes and bread, and they're used to make vodka! Potatoes have contributed too much to this world to be slandered like this.

As a community, we need to come together to find a more suitable food-based way to acknowledge a lack of skill we observe in our fellow players. Some alternatives:
- brussels sprouts
- headcheese
- mayonnaise
- anchovy

If you have an alternative you'd like to suggest, feel free to share it here and from there, we can decide on a more appropriate replacement for potatoes when referring to a player with a lack of skill. Potatoes deserve better, and we as a community need to respect that. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

    I like that you tried to put it into action to try it's effectiveness. Bravo to you. That could make for a solid experimental exercise.

    I was playing GA on Endor and while I'm using Palpatine, I had a group cornered, doing damage but the anchovies in my squad weren't couldn't be bothered to give any support fire and my killstreak got destroyed.

    One match of GA on Kamino, I was trying to take control of the barracks with Bossk but my team was nothing but headcheese and nobody was pushing forward.

    Side note: to anybody that's eaten, seen, smelled, or been around headcheese, from the bottom of my heart I am truly, deeply sorry.

    I like using the terms "melons" to refer to a player who seems to be performing at a below average level. Also, I hate melons so dont come at me trying to say they're good because they're not.....stupid melons.
