We are all Sisyphus

In short, Sisyphus, in Greek mythology, was punished for his deceitfulness by being forced to roll a gigantic boulder up a hill, watch it roll back down, and repeat this action forever and ever and ever. Albert Camus writes about our beloved Sisyphus in his essay, The Myth of Sisyphus, but turns Sisyphus' monotonous and rather tragic punishment into something beautiful. He says that the struggle itself is enough to fill a man's heart. He concludes the essay with: "One must imagine Sisyphus happy." This is, by far, one of my favorite quotes. You can read more about The Myth of Sisyphus on Wikipedia. However, The Myth of Sisyphus is not my favorite Wikipedia page. My favorite Wikipedia page is called "List of potato dishes" and I plan on making every single dish on that list eventually before I die.

What is your favorite Wikipedia page?
And what is your favorite potato dish?
