Corn -- It's not just for shooting

The husband and I helped at the local Farm Fest this weekend.

In the morning, I supervised the corn ring toss game. In the afternoon, we worked at the corn shooter.

At both places, lots of kids put ears of corn in their mouths.

Lots of parents said, "Don't put that in your mouth."

I was good, and didn't say, "Oh, they do every day."

Instead, I asked, "Do you know what this kind of corn is used for?"

Most guessed animal feed.

But, I pointed out, that it's also people feed.

It goes in their cornbread, their corn flakes, their vegetable oils, and sweeteners.

Okay, I admit, that I found shooting corn cobs a lot more fun than tossing them through rings...
