There are many crops that exceed the annual tonnage of Corn. Rice, wheat, corn and sugar cane are at the top of tonnage grown for consumption. I wonder if we could do without Chex and sugar? Or feed our livestock? Likely not.
Yes! Corn is my savior! I love corn and corn loves me! And all those evil unbelievers should agree with me, because I KNOW I'm right. Look outside. See all that? That was created by corn, because corn said so. Also, I had the flu, and I didn't die, so it must have been corn saving me! Boy oh boy, I sure love the almighty creator corn! Now agree with me or burn forever on the grill of death!!!!!!!
