Second Chances?



No matter how thoroughly I chew it, the kernels always come out again whole. If you can recognize a food upon coming out of your backside it should be calorie free, right?

How does that even happen, anyway? I chewed it. I chewed it GOOD for crying out loud! 

Maybe it isn’t really a food….

      • Hahaha! Ya’ know, there are just some things in the universe that our little brains can’t fathom. The enormity of space, the meaning of life, and how corn regenerates itself in the small intestine. I suppose we just have to accept it and move on. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  1. I made the very same observation when I walked my sister’s golden retrievers after she fed them corn. It’s all roughage like Metamucil which one of my geriatric patients calls his “Rocket Fuel”.

  2. Lettuce, black olives, an occasional piece of tomato and poppy seeds, in addition to the corn. Being an artist, I love when eating different foods cause a color variation, too. So glad I am not the only one that can talk about this stuff…anytime….anywhere….much to the chagrin of my family!

  3. Back in University days, I fixed dinner for two friends, one Russian and one Chinese. I made corn on the cob and both looked at me in amazement. The Russian said, “But that’s… pig food.” The other nodded. We ended up eating Cheerios and going out for a beer.

  4. Thanks for those visuals. Glad I just finished lunch. My highly scientific explanation for this mystery…peristalsis squishes all those chewed up kernels back together as they travel along and voila… pristine corn is returned as if by magic 😁

  6. A 1000 bonus points for making me laugh out loud.

    I am bone tired and ready to call it a day, then decided to read one more post before I shut down my computer. I chose this one.

  7. A reputed french anthropologist I used to know told me once that was probably how the corn agriculture started. As precolombian tribes would eat wild corn, and “evacuate” behind the huts, someone some day realized that corn was growing back where the loo was… Then probably experimented (made a null hypothesis) confirmed hypothesis and started planting grains… πŸ˜‰
