It sounds harmless, silly even. But for residents of the Belhaven neighborhood in Jackson, Mississippi, it's becoming something of a serious concern: Bowls of mashed potatoes are showing up everywhere and no one knows where they are coming from, reported the Washington Post.

What’s the use of leaving them if there’s no gravy on top of them?

Find out where the bowls are typically bought from.
Examine the store monitor cameras and receipts.

Have those ‘Mashed Potatoes’ chemically analyzed.
Check Twitter, Instagram, Reddit or 4Chan to see who’s bragging about Bowl-Gate. There are probably videos of citizen reaction online for additional chuckles.
Who’s video?

Oh, but first find out how much of the annual budget the Police Dept. wants to give to this mystery.

It’s the latest, it’s the greatest
Mashed potato, ya, ya ,ya, ya
A Mashed potato started long time ago
With a guy named Sloppy Joe
You’ll find this dance is so cool to do
Come on baby, gonna teach it to you
Mashed potato, feel it in your feet now
Mashed potato, come on get the beat now
Baby, come on honey, come on baby, ya, ya, ya, ya
And then they dance it through and through
They look for records they can do it to
They got a dance was outta sight
Doin’ the lion sleeps tonight
ya a weem o wep a weem o wep
(Mashed potato) ya, ya, ya, ya
(It’s the latest) oh, baby
(It’s the greatest) come on, honey
Ya, ya, ya, ya
Now everybody is doin’ fine
They dance alone or in a big boss line
And they discovered it’s the most man
The day they did it to Please Mr. Postman
wait a minute, wait a minute
(Mashed potato) deliver the letter
(It’s the latest) oh, baby
(It’s the greatest) come on, honey
Ya, ya, ya, ya
Well they got with more and more
Ya ought to see ‘em around the floor
The mashed potato long long list
They even do it to Dear Lady Twist
get up on your tail now
(Mashed potato) ya, ya, ya, ya
(It’s the latest) come on, baby
(It’s the greatest) oh, honey
Ya, ya, ya, ya
feel the groovy beat now
