Suppository style. With extra butter.

A tangential story: When I was in kindergarten, parents worked, so paid a mother of one of my classmates to watch me for half the day I wasn't in school, which included feeding me. We would sometime have corn on the cob, and us kids were given half a cob at a time. To get a second half of a cob, she made us eat every single kernal off the first one. She would literally check and hand them back to us to finish a stray kernel or two. Crazy lady.

option 2 seems like it should be "Eat one complete rotation before shifting over on the cob"

I'm perfectly all right knowing my sucking skills are nowhere near as great as yours.

You knowingly admit this?
I think I may add this to my sig line, congrats!
