Corn cobs

I was at my local hobby shop when nature called. It was number 1. There on the top of the stool was a “Big Gulp” cup full of corn cobs. Rough as a cob? These actually felt soft… to the finger tips. Did great grandpa actually employ these or just smoke out of em?
Hold on, now I’m getting a vision of someone walking like …

Yep. More progressive great grandpas used two types of cobs, red and white. The process goes:

  1. Use one or two red cob(s)
  2. Use one white cob to determine whether additional red cob(s) needed.
  3. Repeat as necessary.

That’d wipe the smile off Mr. Whipple’s face.

I can’t believe you touched his corn cob!
