I think this is just a sentence to learn a word, nothing special. (now: rise of the potato believers)

There are waaay too many hits on Google on this topic :-) Whoever wrote this sentence may have heard the story posted by the Nürnberger Zeitung in 2010 called "Oh You Holy Potato" referring to two seperate families who both cut into a potato to find the sign of the cross. What?!

Oh you holy potato The potato in this story must have ability to talk , too

I don't think I will ever need to use this vocabulary

You might need to ask a question "Where is the _.".. from time to time. I try to look at the sentence structure, not necessarily the exact words in each sentence...

Wasn't there a holy pumpkin in the Charlie Brown comics
