How come when you eat corn, no matter how much you chew it, you poop it out in whole kernals?
Corn poop is one of the greatest mysteries in life. I grew up pondering the same question. This is what I think is happening:
When we chew corn, the outer coating slips off the inner kernal. This outer yellow coating is almost entirely cellulose, and is indigestible. It passes through the gut untouched, and emerges looking like a whole kernal, although it is mostly just the outer skin. The inside of the kernal is starchy and digestible, and that is the part that we succeed in chewing up.

10. That's why I don't eat corn
Popcorn doesn't do it for me as much but it still does sometimes.

You have to watch what you eat when you're a gay man. :hide:

11. Locking.
Please do not post bodily functions on Democratic Underground under any circumstances. And especially not when I have just finished eating dinner.
