Sweet Potatoes in the news

Congressman Gene Taylor Travis Childers (whose district does not include the sweet potato capital of the world) is seeking $400,000 in federal funds for research to turn sweet potatoes into a biofuel.

I know there’s a relevant sweet potato joke lurking in there somewhere but I’m just not seeing it right now.

Update: The series of bullets in the Clarion Ledger piece threw me; as Researcher pointed out in comments, I just misread the article. It’s a request from Congressman Childers, and is very much connected to the interests of his district, which contains the sweet potato capital of the world.
