My man titties are excited for cheaper corn syrup.

Still no cure for finding corn in poop when you haven't eaten it for weeks

Fragment from the article:

And that could mean cheaper food for consumers.

First link under "Related"

Food prices will continue to rise in 2012, says USDA

Hooray for subsidies!!! And ConAgra and Monsonto. Flood that corn market cause it doesn't matter, you still make money!!!

Isn't that cute, the article writer think that cheaper raw products will translate to cheaper finished goods, rather than the manufacturers pocketing the savings.

/My 4 year old probably knows better

More high fructose corn syrup for everyone! Yay?

Nonono! It's called corn sugar now, and it's the same as regular sugar. The in-shape lady from the TV commercial said so.

Lower prices could translate into cheaper meat, processed foods and beverages for Americans.

Yay! More diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

Yay. A heavily subsidized grain with almost no nutritional value.

largest corn crop in 75 yrs? 1937 in the midwest was the great depression...
I thought farming was so much more diversified back then too (not a two crop system like today)


Did they start keeping records 75yrs ago?

/trying to make sense of it

Corn is what food eats.

I still don't get the purpose of corn except as a easy starch replacement, even though my wife calls it a vegetable.

She's not as bad as my friend who for dinner served us spaghetti, with sides of corn and mashed potatoes.

/and she can't figure out why she can't keep off the weight

One benefit for this is that the corn on the cob you buy will more than likely be pristine and sweeter than usual. Yum. I hate buying weedy corn on the cob.

Behold! More Corn!

The bumper American corn supply - expected to be the largest in more than a decade - should help tamp down the price of corn as much as 25%. Prices surged during the last growing season after poor weather hurt supply even as demand skyrocketed.

Not possible because of Buttbongo's Magic Money Printing Press. RON PAUL!

Or they could grow actual edible crops, seeing as most of the corn is either made into corn syrup (to put in EVERYTHING) or food for livestock.

There's just one little, bitty variable in all this: the weather.

If the March heatwave east of the Rockies is the new normal, what if it comes back in July and we go 3 or 4 standard deviations above normal for a week? In Corn Belt terms, that means 110 degree highs and very little pollination. Or maybe the high that tormented Texas last year comes back to dessicate the mid-Mississippi Valley.

Hopefully the farmers who planted in late March (instead of May) weren't burned by those hard freezes in April.

Oh Deere! I hope this doesn't affect my stock holdings in a negative way....

Smeggy Smurf: Still no cure for finding corn in poop when you haven't eaten it for weeks


It's a largely inedible grain requiring much processing to make it even partially digestible. I'd barely be shocked if there was a correlation between corn consumption and metastasis of cancer. Seeing it in my poop is a relief, in that at least some of it did not assimilate with my esophogeal lining.

In other words, drink whiskey instead
