COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man who jokingly sought $10 to pay for his first attempt at making potato salad has raised more than $37,000 from a crowd-sourcing Internet site.

Zack "Danger" Brown, of Columbus, says he's now considering throwing a huge public potato-salad party with the money, which started pouring in after his request took on a life of its own.

Six days into the campaign, he's raised money from more than 3,400 backers worldwide.

The 31-year-old co-owner of a software company says he hasn't been getting much sleep.

Brown told The Columbus Dispatch that he did it for the "pure enjoyment and silliness of life."
