There's a heartbeat in every potato

Posted by Tristan MacAvery on January 13, 2007

As a long-time fan of author Stephen King, I've noticed his frequent use of homilies and phrases such as "use your head to save your feet". The one that I've seen him use a few times, and which I can't find any source for, is the phrase "there's a heartbeat in every potato" (found, as one example [out of context], in his novel "Dolores Claiborne"). My searches online have found nothing. Does anyone recognize this little maxim?
