Children of the Corn

Since when is being lost in corn fun?
When I was a kid Stephen King ruined corn the way Peter Benchley ruined swimming. It was all bloody scythes, horror, and nightmares.
Guess it's because they aren't 19 yet.

story: Children of the Corn • author: Stephen King

I completely agree. I cannot imagine having fun in a maze. They are super popular, so some people must.

Thanks for backing me up on this. The kids had a great time. I found the whole thing to be a little claustrophobic and creepy.

Hah, hate to be the dissenter here, especially since your Ikea post just had me laughing, but my hubby and youngest love the corn maze. None of us saw Children of the Corn... that must be the difference. :) :)

Thanks for your comment! I think I probably read too much Stephen King in high school. A friend pointed out that after Children of the Corn came Field of Dreams which made corn all warm and fuzzy again.
