Last night I was having an Irish dinner (baked potatoes and beer). I checked the potatoes in the oven by sticking a fork in them to see if they were done. I stuck the fork in one of the potatoes and it exploded all over the oven like a mini bomb. That never happened to me before!

In some cultures religious leaders used to read chicken entrails and or the tea leaves to divine future events. Is this exploding potato a sign of the future? If so, how should one interpret this?

What is the meaning of an exploded potato?
