A Power Drill Makes Eating Corn on the Cob Take Only 10 Seconds

Most of the fun in eating corn on the cob is the messy process of biting your way along the rows of kernels while melted butter drips down your arm. But, apparently, some people just don't have time for that -- as evidenced by a new video that shows a dude demolishing an ear of the yellow stuff with a freaking drill and the sheer strength of his teeth. Warning: just watching it will make you want to floss.

The video, which surfaced on YouTube this week, shows the dude bravely sink his teeth into the rapidly spinning corn cob he attached as a giant, edible drill bit. It's almost difficult to watch, but after about 10 seconds of spraying kernels and pieces all over the place, he's left with a perfectly corn-less cob and a huge mouthful of corn. Oh, and probably some serious dental bills. 

To be clear, the video is far from the first example of someone demolishing corn on the cob with the help of a power tool, but that doesn't make the 30-second clip any less insane/awesome/terrifying/disgusting/inspiring. Let's just hope he at least took the time to dip the corn in butter and sprinkle some salt on it, you know, as nature intended.
