Ministerial spud: Jacinda Ardern’s Instagram post goes viral after she’s sent potato in mail

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern has skyrocketed in popularity over the past few years, and there’s no doubt she ‘s-mash-ed’ the election. Her big wide smile is ‘ap-peeling’, inspirational messages ‘spud-tacular’ – and according to election results, 49 percent of Kiwis ‘rooted’ for her, writes Crystal Wu in a news story published by Newshub.

Crystal writes that the Prime Minister recently posted on her Instagram one of the most bizarre gifts she’s been given… a potato. “I get sent some amazing things. I get sent some interesting things. And sometimes, I get sent a potato,” she posted on Tuesday.

“Thank you to whoever sent it to me, the accompanying puns were spectacular.” “Congratulations on your spud-tacular victory,” a fan wrote on the potato. “You smashed it again.”
