Corned cornball geneticist give corny speech about corn.

If we can have Wisconsin cheeseheads, I see no problem with Missouri cornheads.

This actually started as U of Nebraska and Iowa fans' reaction to Wisconsin cheeseheads, which began as an ironic reaction to (mostly Illinois) people calling us "cheeseheads." Of course nobody ever called Nebraska or Iowa fans "cornheads" except possibly each other. We tried to explain this to them...

*Applauds padraig for inexplicable reasons*

So, is the genetics achievement that the corn grew into a human or that the human grew a new head of corn? If the latter, we may be on the brink of solving world hunger...

we're going to need a bigger microwave.
