Sweet Corn In Da House

Our super-nice friend, High Bibliographer Priestess, brought us a bunch of sweet Ohio corn. Hooray! Thank you HBP! She also brought an awesome present for Mateo's St. John James Day (for which we are also thankful), but this is about corn. Dammit.

So we started taking pictures of the corn, since you it's not every day you see sweet Ohio corn. Yes. The family Spurious needs very little encouragement to pic up the camera.

Then we started taking pictures with the corn:

And I started getting into it:

And the next thing you know, I'm using them as nunchucks.

And making bad puns. Uni-CORN. HA!

No, none of the pictures were dirty. But thanks for asking.

And thanks again, High Bibliographer Priestess! For presents and corn!

    Excuse me, but dirty, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. You see perfectly innocent corn-related pictures. What I see is entirely mine. Thank YOU for asking.

    Oh, and the ninja corn pic? Sssssssmokin' ...

    Is that the mystical Cornicorn?

    Dammit, I'm disappointed. Where the hell else can I see dirty pictures of corn? COME ON, Plum.

    I'd call you the Mistress of the Corn, but that wouldn't sound right.

    I want to crack jokes, but they are all dirty ones.

    You crack me up!

    Plum, you're a corn star. With a website, no less.

    You are so silly. Come visit Louisiana and sweat to death. Oh, and visit me.

    Nilbo left a comment somewhere about "Spurious Plum's corn porn." This was NOT what I was expecting to see.

    I'm glad to know you acted respectably with the corn, and Nilbo is just spreading vicious and unfounded rumors. (Dirty old man.)

    Calling me a "dirty old man" is hurtful and wrong. I am not old. I am firmly lodged in arrested adolescence.

    Does that corn have a solid middle? I mean ... would it be fair to call it hard core corn?

    DAMN IT!

    Everyone beat me to the good corn jokes.

    Though, here in Southwestern Ohio we have a game called "Cornhole". I kid you not.

    Google it.

    I just want to put it out there that we SO don't need to see the pictures of the dreaded Corn Poopy.

    I'm just sayin'!

    I was going in the line of what Holy Schmidt was saying. You know. No pics of the Cornback Rattlers.

    So much fun. And so darn corny!

    Dear Plum,

    As the HBP mentioned in the corny post, I'm glad to hear that you received said corn and appreciated it. Just want you to know that all that comes from Ohio is not creepy and right-wing. Redundant, right?

    anything involving numchucks alone is funny - corn numchucks? you are a total corndog!

    How dirty are ya'll?!?!?

    Especially you, Nilbo.

    Mr. Naughtypants.

    There are a lot of silly things that could be said and have been...

    I'm more interested in that gorgeous corn! It looks delicious!

    I'll share a great recipe:

    Husk Corn. Rinse. Cut corn into 2 inch rounds. You should get 4 per ear at least.

    Grill for 2 min. per side. That's it.

    Serve with butter, herb butter, salt, pepper...whatever!


    You can make a big herb butter or garlic butter dip(butter and herbs or garlic mushed together) and serve corn with the dip. Just remember: No double dipping unless you have a personal bowl of garlic butter.

    Long ago, I lived on a nature preserve and we had a huge garden with a lot of corn. One day the manager of the place and I were harvesting some corn and he started eating an ear right there. I was suprised and he said raw is the best way. Now, I don't really like corn except if it's raw. Everyone I know in the universe looks at me like I have seven heads when I eat raw corn on the cob.

    Anybody else eat raw corn?

    I gotta get off this page before my wife sees me looking at those corn pics.

    Whoa! Watch out! Are you sure that corn is of legal age?

    Why is everyone's blog making me hungry?! It's like everyone is writing about food! (Then again, I am talking to a plum...)
