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?!

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...

This is one explanation from Google:

Urban Dictionary: Holy Potato https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Holy Potato Holy Potatounknown. The Holy Potato is made up of three minor potatoes. The Baked Potato, The Sweet Potato, and The Unchanged Potato. The Baked Potato is the being of willpower, The Sweet Potato is the master of wisdom, and The Unchanged Potato is the mind of knowledge. These three spirits combined make the Holy Potato, one organism that lives is the dimension between dimensions.

Maybe it is from Doitsuism, a religion based off the Hetalia character Germany, or "Lord Doitsu." The three most sacred items of the Doitsu religion are the potato, wurst, and beer, which form the "Holy Trinity" of the Doitsu religion.
