Aisle 5: Canned Corn
Aisle 6: Canned Corn
Aisle 7: Canned Corn
Aisle 8: Canned Corn
Aisle 9: Canned Corn
Aisle 10: Canned Corn

At the check-out counter, no magazines, gum, candy bars or 5-hour energy. Just slots for more corn.

Special display cases, with giant plastic blow-up cans of corn like pillars on either side of a pyramid of canned corn.

It’s enough to make one feel crazy. Crazy in love with the options.

What’s for dinner? Corn.
What’s for lunch? Corn.
Whats for breakfast? Corn.
What will we snack on? Corn.
Oh, let’s go on a picnic and bring corn.

I’m thirsty. Corn Syrup! Aisle 4! Right in between the canned corn.

Check it out! Corn in a can at Mr. Cron’s Corn Corner. Of corn that is canned, we have a plethora.

Don’t be a curmudgeon! Be a corn-mudgeon and eat cans of corn from Mr. Cron’s Corn Corner.

The corn comes in a can, it was put there by a man, not in a factory, but in his apartment. So you know it’s homemade.

Just joking. I’m fine. The point is we’ve got a lot of canned corn and corn syrup, but mostly canned corn. Aisles 1-3 and 5-10 with corn.

We don’t have refrigeration it’s just canned corn and corn syrup.

Praise corn!

Success! You're on the list.
