Maybe it's to enable them to find their vehicle in a large parking lot .

Ok, look I am going to go against my better judgement and common sense and tell you the secret behind the "tater-tenna". The famed "tater-tenna" society has been around longer than the knights of the templar, they are a select group of bassackwards redneck country bumpkins and rumor has it that if you still their "tater-tenna" then bring it to their secret meeting you can join, after a small initiation in which you have to pee off a bridge, eat 23 crawdad heads, and drink a cup of warm deer blood. Once in the fun really starts as they have all sorts of tater activities and crafts such as tater dodge ball, tater peel hair extensions, tater hunt and of course the infamous tater eye stacking. Of course their handshake is ..........what else "A TATER". Rumor has it the meetings are in one of two places Lusk or Nine Mile, but to be safe the entire "old east valley road should be checked.

i have been researching this,found out you can use a potato or a orange for a TV antenna for a short time until the fruit drys out..but i cant find any reason it would help reception on a car radio,[FM].
