Last Week's Answer: Corn Cob Cutter, Slicer, Sripper Knife

Congratulations to Andy Wollmann who guessed the correct answer to last week's noodler! As a most-awesome prize, your name will be mentioned in the description below.

Ever tried slicing or sawing kernels off a cob with a regular kitchen knife? That red mess ain't ketchup, Andy Wollmann, it's your warm, delicious red blood. With the corn cob cutter, kernel stripping isn't only convenient, it's bloodless, too! Simply place it on the end of the cob, twist while pushing gently, and the corn comes off in a scattered, fingertip-less mess. Now, when toothless, old, vampiric people come in search of your life-giving red fluid, tell 'em you ain't sellin'; but they're welcome to some fresh kernels, thanks to you and the corn cob cutter. (Then drive a wooden stake through their hearts, just to be safe.)
