A man has made a viable, prosperous business that earns him £1000 a week - by sending people potatoes in the post.

Adrian Nantchev used to work as a computer games tester but ditched his respectable career to scribble messages on potatoes and post them to people instead.

Adrian makes £1k a week

The 22-year-old's customers tell him what they want written on the Maris Piper, and for a cool price of £5.99, he'll then post the potato by Royal Mail.

His website named Potato in the Post, gets up to 30 orders a day – which sees Adrian raking in a grand a week.

He has admitted to pinching the idea from the Americans, after he spotted a similar business across the pond.

Adrian says on his website: "Cards are boring now. Send a potato instead.

"You can send a potato for any occasion. Whether you want to prank your friends or family that share your sense of humour, or you want to send a special message but in a humorous way.

"Imagine the possibilities with sending a message on a potato to your friends or family. Truly out of the ordinary, cannot be forgotten and the message sticks.

"And that is the point of sending a potato. It is memorable. Don't be bland, don't be forgettable. Send a potato in the post."

Well, we've heard it all now!
