We ended up spending 6 days in a row together. This pic was taken in New Orleans and was the night I knew I wanted to spend my life with her,” Hanisch wrote in the caption of the posted photo of him and Schumer.

Corn on the cob is simple food. Why are there so many gadgets to eat it?

Do people think their hands are going to fall off when they touch an ear of corn? Because that is the only explanation for the staggering number of products designed to help us eat it.
