Potatoes and Couches – go together like… well, like… what exactly does that expression mean anyway? Do potatoes in their natural environment flock together and lounge around on soft furnishings all day? 

Let us take a brief look at the various definitions that have been assigned for ‘Couch Potato’…

  1. An idler who spends much time on a couch (usually watching television)
  2. “Couch Potato” is a song by “Weird Al” Yankovic.
  3. Couch Potato was a children’s television show broadcast on ABC TV in Australia, airing on Sunday mornings.

Mostly however, it’s popular usage refers to point 1. 

So from this fascinating fact, one can almost safely assume that this blog will largely concern that ever popular pastime of sitting around consuming all manner of visual, musical and interwebby delights then spouting our opinions of them at you!
