Why is the internet outraged that Walmart is selling "funeral potatoes"?


 Have you ever heard of the dish called 'funeral potatoes'? The internet is a bit freaked out after spotting a Walmart Facebook advertisement for the bagged food item. The "Funeral Potatoes" come in a 13.6-ounce "food pouch," and the photo on the package shows the finished product looking like a creamy potato casserole. Many Facebook users posted about seeing the ad and being at least mildly offended by it.

The name is regional to Utah and other Mormon conclaves
