"A or not A" is true.
Continuum fallacy. Whether or not something is a potato is ambiguous. When does something stop being the root of the potato plant and become a potato? As others have mentioned, what about french fries or potato chips? They are both potato and not-potato. This is a problem with two-valued logic (instead of continuous-valued logics, such as fuzzy logic) in that it requires a precise predicate to render a valid conclusion.

Potatoes aren't elementary particles. This means that potatoes are also not potatoes.
What about part of a potato? the atoms within a potato? a potato is an illusion. the universe is one thing. namaste.

what about hash browns and french fries
How about a fraction of a potato? If I cut a potato in half, it does not constitute a whole potato and therefore not a potato (but rather part of one), but, at the same time, is still made of potato, and is therefore potato. Therefore, it is not black and white.
Assuming the universe is infinite, there are infinite possibilities of "things" existing. Therefore, there is "something" within the universe that is simultaneously a potato and not a potato. "Schrodinger's potato" if you will.
