French fries, hash browns, red potatoes, new potatoes — there are so many ways to eat potatoes that you could eat them every day for a year and never have the same potato twice. If you want to celebrate the potato, these punny Potato Day 2018 Instagram captions will help you give potatoes all the props they deserve. Potatoes (or lack thereof) are why the Irish side of my family came to the U.S. during the potato famine in the 1700s, which means potatoes are the entire reason I'm here writing about National Potato Day.

Pretty much everything can be traced back to potatoes if you look hard enough. National Potato Day, Aug. 19, is the time to celebrate all the joy potatoes bring to your life. I mean, where would we be without French fries? I don't even want to think about it. According to the website National Today, French fries are everyone's favorite potato creation followed by mashed potatoes and the trusty baked potato. There are more than 4,000 different kinds of potatoes, and people have been feasting on them since 8000 BC.

"There’s no wrong way to prepare a potato, and the internet (and probably your grandma) have a million-and-one recipes for you to try," National Today noted. "Nearly ever cuisine has potatoes in it, so you can take a culinary journey with your trusty potato by your side." If you want to celebrate your love for spuds, take yourself to brunch and order a bunch of potato-related dishes, then snap a pic and post it to Instagram with one of these punny Potato Day captions.
