Eating Corn on the cob

Hubby and I had corn on the cob the other night, which got me to thinking, do you eat your cob across typewriter style or eat it downwards.
hubby does typewriter style and I eat it downwards.

I'm like you Lady, and eat down and not across. My hubby likes to butter his all at once and like to butter a section, eat it and butter the next section and eat it.

I've always cut mine off the cob, add butter salt and pepper.

the only down side to the typewriter method is getting butter all over the little bell at the end of a row.
