The Iowa I-80 Song

Check out this out if you would like to see a short video of my recent trip to my home state of Iowa.

I feel it is my duty to educate the people here in Southern Texas and Reynosa about how to eat corn from Iowa. We DO NOT put anything but butter and salt on our corn.  A little pepper (optional) is also permissible.  We DO NOT allow mayonnaise, chile, or cheese.  We also DO NOT allow guacamole as this young man slathered on my most excellent Iowa corn. After I took his photo, I took him outside and had him hanged from the tallest tree which around here is about 5 feet. Thank goodness he isn't too short or I would be in jail although I believe I would have gotten off for justifiable homicide.


  1. Shoot. I'm not from Iowa and even I know that the only things that should go on corn on the cob is salt and

  2. You always make me laugh. I love your sense of humor or should I say sarcasm...
    The song was priceless.

  3. You are a corn-on-the-cob nazi!
    The American way of eating corn is not universal.

  4. Not necessarily the American way, but definitely the Iowan way. Iowa produces more and the best corn than anywhere else in the world. Good corn does not need anything, not even butter. But to satisfy I fat taste buds, we allow a little butter. End of story. I am right and you are wrong.

  5. Huge pet peeve of mine. Don't dare come in my home and start putting all that shit on my elotes. If you are my guest you will eat them the proper way, butter and salt!
