The heartwarming tale of a potato that was accepted into the league of consoles.

Epic Reddit Prank

It is not every day that Google gets trolled so magnificently. So ingenious is this prank that Google was fooled into thinking that this potato is a gaming console.

It turns out Google is pretty gullible. All it takes is a Reddit user, in this case DANNYonPC, to post a photo of potato with the caption: "Gaming Console. If you vote this up, it will show up on Google Images when people Google search Gaming Console, Xbox One or PlayStation 4."

And it happened. More than 4,000 upvotes later, Google accepted the lowly potato as a gaming console.

 High five, Reddit! And for shame, Google algorithm.
