Are You Getting Enough Roughage?

Corn is a good source of thiamin, folic acid, phosphorus, vitamin C, magnesium and dietary fibre or "roughage."



"Corn is a food that gives us plenty of chewing satisfaction, and its high ratio of insoluble-to-soluble fiber is partly the reason."

But its "insoluble fiber is tops at tackling common digestive ailments (like constipation and hemorrhoids) by absorbing water, which swells the stool and speeds its movement."

    3. NATIONS: Plaintive calls?

      This is not a film starring Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald.

      Or are you perhaps confusing Infomaniac with “Oklahoma?”

    2. When I wrote this comment it was early in the morning and I was not yet fully awake. I thought there were three corn things in picture number 2, as three cucumbers in yesterday's post second pic.

    3. But there ARE three cobs of corn total in the post! *throws copy of 'Da Vinci Code' at Mago* Pay attention.

    5. May we suggest that Mago drink his morning coffee before viewing Infomaniac?

      But do NOT spit it over the screen.

      You could be banned for that.

      You might want to remove the husks before your first try.

  5. That fool in the top picture eats that ear of field corn he's going to end up with a good case of the runs. He'll need those two other ears to plug him up.

    1. COOKIE: Bonus points for realizing that it’s an ear of FIELD corn, not SWEET corn.

      We’ll make a farm girl of you yet.

      Pigs, that is.

  12. Nothing like yellow polka-dot poopies swimming in the toilet to brighten the morning after a full-on corn binge. I usually rent a motel room for the weekend before I indulge.

      I think it’s only fair that you learn about Infomaniac’s new zero tolerance policy.

  13. Just because I don't comment here very often, nor do I condone your pitiful perversions, I am monitoring you, at least as closely as is the CIA - and you are still a disgusting ratbag.

    1. VICUS: Last time you were here you called me a “vile old tart.”

      “Disgusting ratbag” may indicate I'm rising in your esteem.

      May I remind you that it’s YOU who suggested I post more recipes!
