Damn, corn on the cob is some of the messiest food there is to eat! I wanna know, how do you eat your corn on the cob?? Do you eat from right to left, or left to right, like an old fashioned typewriter way?? Or do you eat starting at one end, and turn the cob as you go, then make your way down to the other end?? And how do you butter your corn?? Butter it and salt it all at once...before you begin to eat??......or do you butter a small area, then eat that buttered part, then butter another part and so on?? Me, I don't eat corn on the cob in restaurants or even public gatherings, the mess makes me feel horrible, I feel like butter is smeared all over my face, and I just can't stand that, so I use a knife and cut mine from the cob, if it is served in a public gathering. Then, I'm weird when it comes to eating it. I butter and salt, one strip...one line, if you will...and then eat that one buttered and salted line. Then when that is finished, I butter me a next line and do the same. I never butter the entire ear of corn at once.
