How do you eat corn?
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 10:14 AM by atomic-fly
Like a typewriter or by rotating it fully like a lathe (like chimpy below)?
I eat like a typwriter.

4. I just deep throat it, and scrape the corn off with my teeth
as I pull it out.

5. Typewriter.
And I know this is strange, but I use my teeth to pull the whole kernel out of the cob, rather than biting in the kernel. (Then I chew it of course.) But it leaves the cob really stripped bare instead of woolly like most people leave it.

6. I eat corn any way it can be prepared.
But if it is on the cob, then I guess you could call it typewriter fashion!

13. With a fork.
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 09:22 PM by D__S
Seriously. Been doing it since I was a kid.

You dig the fork tines in between the kernels and pry them loose.

Works pretty good once you get the hang of it... the kernels don't get stuck in your teeth and corn juice doesn't ejaculate in your face, eyes, etc like they would if you bit directly into the cob.

19. How come they call corn on the cob instead of just 'corn'?
After all, that's how it grows. If anything, they should call the stuff in a can 'corn off the cob'. If I had my arm chopped off you might call me 'Merrick', but if it were reattached it be a bit odd to call me 'Merrick all together again'.

miss that Mitch Hedberg...
