This is truly the great question of our age.

Michael Bublé, the singer/songwriter/heartmelter with a thing for Christmas, has been spotted eating corn on the cob.

The photo has caused untold uproar as people have suggested that he does not know how to eat corn on the cob.

Just look at the angle he's going in at:

Unsurprisingly, it's led to coverage:

People say he doesn't know what he's doing:

But maybe they're all wrong...

There's a theory at play suggesting the man actually knows exactly what he's doing:

He's creating some sort of handle, so the crazy theory has been posited: he's making life easier for himself in the future by eating the top first.

Andrew Griffin, tech journalist for the Independent and apparently some sort of corn expert, said:

Seems kind of sensible, one handed.

Normally when you get a piece of corn-on-the-cob, it'll have both ends chopped off so that the top and bottom are flat. But with this piece, the natural "cone" that exists at the top is still there — meaning that he can't hold it at both ends like you usually would.

So he’s going to eat that 15 per cent at the top and it makes sense to eat it first so that he can then use that eaten part as a handle for the rest (without getting butter or whatever on his hands).

Mind. Blown.

It's a definite curveball of a theory, and now the decision needs to be made by you, dear reader, about the Bublé conundrum.
