The human female went to have lunch with one of her friends (Yes, she has them. Yes, I am as surprised as you are.) The friend works for one of the departments that falls under the College of Agriculture, and female came back with a little giftie.
(poke, poke, poke) I don’t know about this, Sigyn… It looks all ripe and yellow, but it has a decidedly weird texture. I do not think it would make a good roasting ear, nor do I think we should attempt to put it in the microwave to make popcorn.
Wait! Stop! Get back there, you! Where did you come from and what do you think you’re doing?!
Ah. That explains the weird texture. It’s not sweet corn—it’s feed corn.
