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:

@doingthings

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.

Innovation is awesome, right? I mean, it gave us the internet!

However, there is always a price to pay for modernization, and in this case, it’s in the form of digital eye strain, a group of vision problems that can pop up after as little as two hours of looking at a screen. Some of the symptoms are tired and/or dry eyes, headaches, blurred vision, and neck and shoulder pain1. Ouch!

A metal detector hobbyist looking for treasure on the beach.

Joseph Cook, 37, is a popular metal detectorist on social media where he shares videos of the many treasures he finds on Florida beaches. But what’s even more engaging than his finds is the incredible excitement he brings to the hobby. It’s like watching Steve Irwin, but with a Florida accent.

Not only is his attitude infectious but he also makes a point of doing good when he finds lost items. He wears a necklace around his neck with multiple rings that he’s found to remind him of his mission to return lost treasures.

Recently, he told SWNS that he dug up "the biggest diamond I ever found” on the beach. "When I first found it I thought it would just be a nickel, but then I dug it up and it was just this big old diamond and platinum ring," he said.

Dwayne Johnson 'rights a wrong' at the 7-Eleven he used to shoplift from as a kid

The Rock admitted to stealing a Snickers bar every day for almost a year.

Johnson bought every Snickers bar in the store to "right a wrong"

Dwayne Johnson is a celebrity known for his generosity. Sure people know about his one-of-a-kind eyebrow raise an insane gym schedule, but it’s also common knowledge that he regularly makes surprise appearances to those in need. Not to mention his gifts are legendary—from puppies to trucks to houses.

So, it might not seem that out of the ordinary for the wrestler-turned-actor to buy every single Snickers bar at a 7-eleven and give them to customers for free. However, this was more than a good deed—it was an act of redemption.

As the “Black Adam” star shared in a video posted to his Instagram, this was the 7-Eleven he used to shoplift from while growing up in Hawaii.
