Or, and I'm just spitballing here, you could be ultra super daring and just, you know, pick it up and hold it with your bare hands.

A is the correct answer.

B is an acceptable alternative.

D is only an option if you're doing something else with the corn -- i.e., you need it as an ingredient for another recipe.

C is an early indication of severe mental crisis and should involve an immediate call to 988.

If you make elote, and the stuff isn't evenly distributed, you can eat the parts that have more stuff first.

I go with B on the ends to make a good place for holding and then switch to the A method.

One company, Michigan-based Lilly Industries, created a product called the Cob Nob

...product moniker or penile pet name, it still works. Sure beats "hogleg."

Most standard ones are fine, until they break.  That's why I upgraded to adamantium:

...I actually LOL'ed upon seeing those. That's fantastic; I'm tempted to buy them just so my wife rolls her eyes clean out of her head when I pull 'em out for corn.

Corn holders are basically useless. Even real cute ones, like my weinerdog set. At least those look cute sitting on a shelf.

I just use toothpicks. Then you can just pitch them. Nothing to clean.

I have the little 2 prong fake cob units. Dirt cheap, easy to use, and since I don't flail about randomly while eating corn, perfectly sufficient.

I used to use cocktail/orderve forks but decided to try something else when one slipped during the insertion process and wound up stuck in the side of my other hand.
Eating bloody corn is no way to go through life, son.

And that's why you're an engineer and I'm a contractor. Physical world meets theoretical and it goes all stabby and physical dimensions don't line up.

I bite off individual kernels to leave messages in morse code.

Dude?
No, I'm not an engineer, I'm a journeyman machinist who does everything from diamond turning to design to tapping holes in heat sinks. My dimensions line up more than you can imagine... ;)
Not my fault it was defective corn.
