Me So Corny!

Today's FWOTD: corny

Definition from Merriam-Webster:

1corny
Pronunciation: \ˈkȯr-nē\ Function: adjective Inflected Form(s): corn·i·er; corn·i·est Date: 14th century 1 archaic : tasting strongly of malt 2 : of or relating to corn 3 : mawkishly old-fashioned : tiresomely simple and sentimental — corn·i·ly \ˈkȯr-nə-lē\ adverb — corn·i·ness \ˈkȯr-nē-nəs\ noun

2corny Function: adjective Inflected Form(s): corn·i·er; corn·i·est Date: 1689 : relating to or having corns on the feet
Ew. The 2nd definition is really gross.

2/11: fetus

2/10: doofus

2/9: chirp
