a potato war is a battle consisting of 2 sides in which the 2 sides throw potatoes at the other. The two sides will usually buy the potatoes from any local grocery while getting angry looks and threats from old ladies and subway workers prior to the war. There are no rules in a potato war, although it would be ill advised to throw below the belt, but it is a risk you take because of the comedic effects that ensue.
Instead of going to the movies, we went behind henry's and had the first of what will be many potato wars.
