The Boy Confronts Diversity

The Boy, after dinner, honestly perplexed:

“How can anyone not like candy corn?”

I really don't understand this one myself. In fact, I think I need candy corn today, now that The Boy mentions it....
I have insisted for years that the greatest episode of Iron Chef would be "Battle Candy Corn."

Imagine...two great hour...and a big fat sack of candy corn...

Usually the "big ingredient" is something dull, like beans or cod. Candy corn would tax their culinary abilities.

I ask the same thing every October...
This reminds me of a snippet from a Lewis Black routine in which he bashes candy corn. "Candy Corn is the only candy in the history of America that's never been advertised. And there's a reason. All of the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911." He also makes a big deal out of "Is it candy? Or is it corn?"
Amen, The Boy. A-Men.
Your son is very, very wise.
