Some people say we're headed for/already in a recession. I hope we don't go into a depression, because it looks like Depression-era forms of amusement like this potato game (circa 1933) would have turned the most optimistic person into a shell of their former selves. Let's hope these folks were drinking. I don't know how else they didn't end up clutching one another in despair given this is how they were supposed to have fun! What could be more depressing than this potato game?
