Perhaps my favorite food in the entire universe is mashed potatoes. If I were to be stranded on a deserted island and the only source of food was mashed potatoes, I'd live a long, rich life.
That said, I'm not great at preparing them. If I try to make the 'real' thing...well, let's just say, I'm still picking mashed potato bits off the ceiling from my escapade with the blender.
So that is why God invented microwave mashed potatoes. He looked down one day and said "Let me give this woman one blessing in life. I shall created microwave mashed potatoes."
...and then there was peace throughout the land.
