The inspiration for this video came to me one night at dinner while I was watching my children eat corn. They were eating as fast as they could, and they each had a unique style of eating corn, so I thought it would be fun to have adults do this.

The result was a wide range of unique ‘styles’ of eating corn. Here are some of them.
