A lazy person buries themselves in the cushions of a couch (sofa, La-Z-Boy) in safe, sedentary comfort, &quot;vegging out&quot; mindlessly in front of the TV, eyes in a fixed, submissive stare. A couch potato never leaves the home, and cannot be motivated, having everything nearby so they never have to move. Compare this to the potato, which is buried in the comfort and providence of soil and to which the only escape from its lifestyle is death. Covered in eyes, but without a brain or muscle, the potato is snuggled and unmotivated. <br />A comfortable sofa is fertile soil for the couch potato.<br />
