How do you eat your corn on the cob?

When I served it at lunch the other day/week, one of my friends noted that two of us ate it typewriter-style and two corkscre style.

How do you eat yours?

I cut it off the cob with a knife--ideally cut very close to the cob so that it comes off in sections you can pick up with your fingers.

That's a good job, letting your younger children play with knives.
