    After attending a picnic today with a big discussion about how to eat com on the cob I just had to ask:

    Do you eat the corn off the cob going across the cob or going around the cob? I eat mine going around the cob but I was definitely out numbered!

    Just curious and wondered if I'm an odd ball.

    BTW, it was delicious regardless how you ate it

    yes, you are just plain odd.....I eat mine left to right. Of course I'm also very rude and just roll the ear on top of a stick of butter too instead of spreading it with a knife...

    I usually cut if off the cob because I have a retainer and its just easier. But when I was younger I was eat down the row and turn and eat it back the other way kinda gal.

    I have braces, but I eat it anyways! I can't stand cutting it off the cob and then eating it. :lol: I eat it left to right, right to left. I don't eat it in any specific way. :lol: :lol:

    Left to right, of course.

    Had a cat one time that ate corn off the cob. He wouldn't eat the kernels if they had been scraped off. I had to get an extra ear of corn, just for him. He also liked to eat cantaloupe.

    I eat mine left to right, then back again....We use spray butter, so that is isn't so messy.....our corn is just about ready for pickin' so I'll be cutting it off the cob and freezing it for winter soon.

    yeah, you're odd....I eat mine 3-4 rows at a time, left to right. But as you said, who cares, it's good no matter how you eat it!

    I do this too. It's easier to eat and nothing gets stuck in my teeth.
