Icon86 Potato Fumes Can Kill You

I just ran across this on YouTube:

ENTIRE FAMILY DIES AFTER YOUNG WOMAN MAKES A SIMPLE MISTAKE IN THE KITCHEN

It's hard to stop laughing. I don't know where to begin explaining why. The computer generated voice with its odd inflections and mispronunciations? The strange and mysterious pen that writes by itself? The way the entire story sounds like a cross between a shaggy dog story and a fairy tale?

Little Maria's father goes into the cellar to get some potatoes. He doesn't return.
Little Maria's mother goes into cellar to find Father. She doesn't return.
Little Maria's brother goes into cellar to find their parents. He doesn't return.
Little Maria's grandmother goes into the cellar to find Maria's parents and brother. She doesn't return.

Eight-year-old Maria is now an orphan, her entire family having succumbed to the fumes of rotting potatoes.

"If you have potatoes in your home that have been sitting out for a long time, you may want to throw them out."

Just how many potatoes did this family have in their basement? How long did they wait between trips to the potato pile?

Perhaps sniffing rotten potatoes will become the next new "high" in Russia.
