Can we forgive Michael Bublé for eating corn like it's a pop rocket?

Dear Michael,

But you know what? If that's how you want to eat corn on the cob, you should just keep going. Don't let the haters stop you from enjoying whatever's happening there at the tip of the ear, where the kernals are super tiny, almost too tiny to chew.

You do you, Michael Bublé. You do you.
