Pat Quinn’s “Great Potato Feud” is a very funny song: funny because of its faithful mockery of conversational style; funny because it maps beautifully the escalation from conversational comment through inebriated argument to drunken brawl; and above all funny because the idea of a pack of Irishmen quarreling about potato varieties seems ridiculous—but not impossible.
