Find the Good Life in the Country! (The Promised Land)

“See if they say anything about the eyes.” Jerry said, looking mournfully at the potato in his hand.

When he’d suggested they move out to the country – live more simply – he never imagined it would be this, well, complicated. The house had been cheap, and neither of them believed in curses anyway.

Pam skimmed the book with her finger. “It just says they’re supposed to have them.” She said, frowning. “I don’t think they’re supposed to look like that though.” She showed him the picture.

No. The eyes weren’t supposed to be black and shiny.
The potato blinked at him.

The blinking potato image is sticking with me. Creepy. Maybe they're from Eye-daho.
