The resultant of the Quantum Potato Incident, as recorded in the text "Insidious Guinea Merchants" circa 1789.
And lo, there it was--stained with agony we doth behold thee--QUANTATO
The first recorded historical incidence of sub-atomic experimentation.
A litte-known captain of the British Royal Navy altered the constitution of a potato in an effort to thwart the legendary privateers of the Barbary Coast. Although the methodology is not revealed, speculation suggests Sir Rothage Dubham may have used a penultimator. The critical portion of the only copy of "Insidious Guinea Merchants" is missing.
And he shall call the great heavens (...) and those who encounter QUANTATO shall for evermore be changed.
