Potato Catastrophe

You know how in Home Economics you were taught to poke little holes in your potatoes with a fork before you bake them? Did you ever wonder what would happen if you didn't poke the holes or you didn't poke ENOUGH of the holes?
Boom!
Oh yeah, that's a mess!
 
So while dinner was cooking I heard a thud which sounded like Christopher hitting his wall with a baseball, once then again. I was about to yell and fuss at him when I heard a third whump and realized it came from the oven. I opened the door and...
UGH!
Cleanup. Actually much easier than I expected. We allowed the oven to cool, then vacumed the mess out with a shop vac.
