“I actually have a lot of jokes about potatoes, I just don’t know where to starch”

Potatoes contain starch. “I would tell a joke about potatoes, but i don’t know where to starch!”—a pun on “where to start”— was posted on Twitter by PUNS on October 30, 2012. “I actually have a lot of jokes about potatoes, I just don’t know were (sic) to starch” was posted on Twitter by jolly dad jokes on November 18, 2017, and again on Twitter on December 7, 2017.

The one-line saying has been printed on several images.
