Hot Potato (game) is a children's game that involves players quickly tossing a small object such as a beanbag to each other while music plays. The child who has (or last touched) the "hot potato" when the music stops is out. Play continues until one child is left, who wins.
From the game, "hot potato" has become an expression that denotes something unwanted, of which nobody wishes to claim the responsibility of, and passes it on to others as quickly as possible (as if to avoid getting burned).

Some day we will again say, "It's not the potato that's bad; it's the stuff you put on it." Today, though, the popular trend is to eat the high-fat, low-carb sour cream, butter and cheese but leave the no-fat, high-carb potato behind.
