Am I right, or am I right?

As I'm sure most of you are aware, barbecue season is now upon us. This leads to the eternal argument at our household. "Why did you buy the bad corn?"

My wife insists on getting yellow corn with the huge kernels. All civilized people realize that white corn with small kernels is the only variety fit for human consumption. That other stuff is for the hog farmer.

Confronted with such elementary facts, she still persists, "I think this type tastes better." Is this some sort of Michigan thing that people who are fortunate enough to grow up with New Jersey corn just can't fathom?
