Random Fact #19

Random Fact #19: Some people call a baked potato a "jacket potato." It might just be a British thing- I'm not entirely sure. I've never heard the phrase before. But now that I think about it, it's logical...

Source: I did a Google search for "jacket potato" and perused the top few results without actually clicking on any of them.

I had to look up "jacket potato" because I came across the term while reading through the Very British Problems Twitter account. "Uh... What's a jacket potato? Are they little potatoes that people carry around in their jacket pockets?"

In my defense, the phrase was in a tweet about people wearing coats.
