Please tell me: am I the only person who is unreasonably irritated by "smashed potatoes"? Did you really SMASH those unsuspecting potatoes with a flippin' mallet, or something? Or did you perhaps MASH them with a good old fashioned mashing implement, or even put them through a ricer? I would accept "riced potatoes" if that is in fact what you did. But unless you crushed the potatoes with your fist, I don't really want to hear about "smashed potatoes."
I'll probably eat them, though.
