This kid's love for corn is contagious.

Is there anything better than corn on the cob? According to this kid interviewed on Recess Therapy, there is not, and after watching him explain why, you may just agree with him.

Recess Therapy is a social media show in which host Julian Shapiro-Barnum interviews kids from ages 2 to 9, and it's every bit as adorable as it sounds. Kids are hilarious, after all, just by being themselves. But once in a while a kid really stands out and this little guy raving about corn while eating corn is impossible not to adore.

First, it's his classic young-kid-missing-front-teeth adorableness. (How does this kid even eat corn on the cob with so many lost teeth?) Then it's the way he says "cowhn" instead of "corn." Over and over, cowhn cowhn cowhn.


There's also the out-of-left-field things he says about corn, such as, "Ever since I was told that corn was real…" Sorry, what? And the deep corn wisdom he espouses: "When I tried it with butter, everything changed" and "Not everybody has to like it to be the best." And then the pure, gushing love: "I can't imagine a more beautiful thing."

But the "corntastic day" part is the piece de resistance. That look on his face. "What?!? It's just a pun about cowhn!"

Just watch, I promise:

Children of the… corn? 😂 🌽 #recesstherapy #corn #cornisgood #fyp #favorite

"CORN IS AWESOME!!!" Yes it is, little man.

The video was shared on the TikTok channel @doingthings with the kiddo's words on screen and has been viewed there more than 6.5 million times. Definitely worth a second watch with the words included:

Do you think corn is real? 🌽 @Recess Therapy

The girl at the end who says she's never had corn needs to get together with this kid. He will definitely convince her. And can you imagine what his reaction would be if he tried elote? Gracious.

The comments on the video are filled with people relating to his corn adoration and quoting their favorite lines from his rave. There are just too many delicious kernels of joy to choose from.

Bless this little Corn King for going straight from questioning whether corn is even real to declaring it the greatest food that's ever existed. We feel you, little dude. And yes, butter definitely makes everything better.

Parents respond to video of Britney Spears.

Parenting is hard for just about everyone. You're completely responsible for a small human that doesn't come with an instruction manual, and it's a case of trying to do the best you can with what you've got. Some people seem to think that celebrities should be infallible, so when Kevin Federline shared a video of Britney Spears being stern with her children there was always going to be negative feedback. But surprisingly, the video has, in fact, stirred up more support for the star and her parenting methods.

Cats are far more badass than we give them credit for.

Cats have a reputation for being aloof and standoffish, like they're better than everyone and simply can't be bothered. Those of us who have cats know they're not always like that … but yes, they're sometimes like that. They can be sweet and affectionate, but they want affection on their terms, they want to eat and play and sleep on their own clock, and we puny, inferior humans have little say in the matter.

There's a reason why we have obedience schools for dogs and not for cats. Maine coon or Bengal, Savannah or Siamese, ragdoll or sphynx, domestic cats of all breeds are largely untrainable little punks who lure us into loving them by blessing us with the honor of stroking their fur and hearing them purr.

But perhaps we assume too much when we think cats are full of themselves for no good reason. Maybe they are actually somewhat justified in their snootiness. Maybe they really, truly are superior to pretty much every other creature on Earth and that's why they act like it.

Love is love.

Kids say the darnedest things, sure. But often they say the wisest things too.

Case in point—this viral video.

Hannah Lewis, a 32-year-old mom and LGBTQ advocate who goes by the name “Lesbimum” on TikTok and Instagram, shared a sweet exchange between her and a young boy after he asked if she had a boyfriend.

Their heartwarming conversation received nearly 2 million likes, and it really offers us all a glimpse into what the world can look like through the eyes of pure acceptance.

When approached with the question, Lewis chose to answer him plainly, rather than “hide who I am.”
