Lately, corn on the cob seems to be a popular food choice for viral food videos. There’s the guy who ate corn on the cob while it was spinning on a power drill, and the gal who tried to recreate the corn on the cob drill and ripped her hair out. Well, here’s another “corny” video that’s much easier to watch.
A corn-eating wombat named Pete stole my heart. Pete the Wombat was featured on the BBC program Natural World 2016, where he was filmed getting his “favorite” snack of sweet corn.
Watching Pete eat sweet corn is hilariously adorable, because he looks pretty comfy. And perhaps a little gassy. His handler seems like a chill guy, too.
After his corn, Pete the Wombat seemed to enjoy his “banana-flavored” medicine and tried to eat the syringe. We’re glad Pete is being looked after so well, because without wombats like Pete in this world, there’s little hope for humanity.
