In December Reddit users drew attention to this case. The frame with writhing in pain Sabotinova published user bigpeeler with the caption “Strongman Dimitar Sabatino raises the world’s largest potato”.
The stone really reminded many of a giant potato, and posture of the athlete and his expression gave rise to a new photoshop battle. Very soon the network spread photoshopped pics with the Bulgarian.
