This is Venezuela’s Minister of the Popular Power for Agriculture and Lands Wilmar Castro Soteldo. The speech he is giving is in Spanish and I apologize to the Non-Speakers, but what he is saying is that corn on the cob, a bunch of it placed in the tread of tanks, will immobilize it.
No, I am not screwing with you.

He also went to say if you toss it inside a plane’s turbine, it will stop it and it corn on the cob can also be used as impact weapon to hit a top of the head at an enemy or stuck it in the eye and he will be stunned.

If you understand Spanish, you can go ahead and leave confirmation of the idiocy in the comments.

  1. What he says about throwing corn cobs into aircraft turbines may or may not be true, but in order to do so one needs to be right next to the engine. Standing so close to a running jet engine is not a good idea. Something along with a corn cob may be sucked into the engine.

    1. Given that jet engines are certified with the “Butterball test” I’d suspect that anything soft won’t bother it much. Hard things like tools or rocks are a different matter.

  2. The best way to use corn on the cob is to trade it to some starving soldier for his least favorite squaddie’s rifle.

  3. There might be a kernel of truth somewhere in there. But I wouldn’t want to bet my life on it.

  4. Given they ran out of toilet paper and food months ago, I suspect any Venezuelan who gets hold of an ear of corn will have more important uses for it.

  5. I’m imagining someone trying to approach the tank in combat, ear of corn in hand, ready to implement this flawless plan.
