Corn Shuckin’ Oath

Yep, didn’t you know? There is a corn shuckin’ oath! 🙂

At least, in the Latham Household there is. Because, of course, every family needs a Corn Shuckin’ Oath!

Corn Oath

I, state your name, do solemnly swear to shuck all the corn that Mom brings home, to the best of my ability.

Recently, while shucking the corn, Doug decided to make Casey take “the oath.”  Casey was doing such a great job. He is now the official family corn shucker! 🙂

Dad had to help Casey a bit with the really big ears.

(because the Corn Shuckin’ Oath is definately a Finer Thing)


  1. Holey Moley. We didn’t do corn this year, but last year it took a small army to shuck and process over 100 DOZEN ears. Good times! 🙂

  2. Wait a minute…this seems like a scam. You make him take the oath. You make his position “official” and then he’s stuck shucking corn for the rest of his life.

    My in-laws ran a scam like this, they called it “The Clean Plate Club” — but all the kids got for their pains was a clean plate.
