Urban Word Wednesday: Crotchcorn

Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!

Crotchcorn: the popcorn that you inevitably drop onto your crotch during a movie that you will eat anyway.

Examples Of Use:

Hubby and I hit the movies with friends last week. We went to see Cabin in the Woods. Ummm…I am not one for scary movies and it was definitely a jumper for me but at the same time it was a comedy. I am honestly not sure how to review it. I liked it but it was….well…weird.

Anyway, there we sat in the back row; hubby, me, my BFF’s hubby (we’ll call him J-Dog), my BFF (the ever-beautiful Laura), and Laura’s sister (Maggie). The theatre was pretty full. We had people in front of us and beside us. I was having myself a good time munching down on a small bag of popcorn.

Normally I would have gotten a regular size but I was trying to be good. But have you SEEN how small a small is now? It’s like a slightly upgraded kid’s pack. And don’t even get me started on how the theatre person tried to short change me about 2 inches of popcorn. OMG! I had to send her back to FILL the bag to the top. I mean, the stuff cost a small fortune; it’s like gold popcorn so I wanted every kernel they could fit in the tiny bag.

ANYWAY, to make a long story short, given that I LOVE theatre popcorn and it was this itty bitty, tiny, little bag (and this was my supper), I wasn’t letting ONE piece go to waste!

J-Dog: good lord – how much crotchcorn do you have down there?

Me: WHAT?!?!?! What is crotchcorn?

J-Dog: you know…all the popcorn that missed your mouth and landed in your crotch that you are now pecking at like a hen. It’s like a never-ending supply down there. To be honest, I can’t believe you are eating that stuff. Most people toss it on the floor.

Me: really? What a waste. I mean, it’s perfectly good popcorn and now it’s like reheated from hanging out down below. It’s like it just came out of the popcorn maker. I like crotchcorn!

J-Dog (to hubby): she’s all yours big guy.

Hubby: don’t I know it, a real treat.

Me: I am so using this on my blog. My readers will love to know about crotchcorn! And I bet they eat it!

So how about it? Do you eat the crotchcorn or toss it on the floor (all wasteful) like hubby and J-Dog? Come on…share the wealth…

  1. Oh Natalie! You kill me! I am now adding this word to my vernacular…I nearly splorted my coffee…

  2. ROFL, Nat! Hey, it’s a dark theater, why waste it, right? Thanks so much for the shout-out, too! Have a fab day. 😀

  3. Oh, wow! That is awesome. Of couse I eat it! We ALL eat it, some people just lie about eating it because they are embarrassed. Anyone who says they don’t eat it, probably eats twice as much and drops it down there on purpose for the extra warming effect. 🙂

  4. Seriously great name. We saw The Avengers Monday (awesome) and I was so into the movie I just kept shoveling popcorn into my mouth. Quiet a bit landed in my lap, which makes for a later snack. Worst thing about movie popcorn is that all the butter will stain. I’m such a slob I always have a napkin protecting my clothes!

    • A snack later is KEY!! I always love finding crotchcorn. It’s like the surprise treat you forgot you had! LOL!!!
      Oh I know. We don’t do the butter but we do add the seasoning powder which goes EVERYWHERE!!! We come out looking all dusty and dishevelled. LOL!

    hehehe Yeah, I’ve eaten a few kernels of crotchcorn over the years. Nothing wrong with it at all. 🙂

  6. Oh my. I will never eat popcorn at the theater without thinking of you, my lovely friend. Crotchcorn. Yeah, I’m not going to share that one with The Kid. I can just imagine him telling all his friends about it and then the phone calls from their parents… that can be such a bother. But I will be laughing when I see him eating his crotchcorn (which he does, I don’t ever spill, so I don’t).

    Warmed up… you simply slay me!

  7. OMG, I’m so adding this word to the vocabulary! And I’m never going to be able to eat popcorn without thinking of you, LOL. “…now it’s like reheated from hanging out down below. It’s like it just came out of the popcorn maker.” — tears, I have tears from laughing so hard. You. Are. A. Riot.

  8. Crotchcorn is definitely NOT to be wasted! Now we’re all going to be thinking of you whenever we are munching at the movies.

  9. Crotchcorn. Love it! Of course, it’s not the same when in the crotch of the ten or six-year-old sitting next to you. 😐 LOL. God I love your stories. One happened between my husband and me the other night and I said, “OMG! This is just like Natalie and her husband! LOL. Should I put this on the blog? Your mom would simply die.” Hahaha. You’re now famous when being compared in other homes like that. 😉

    • OMG Debra that’s AWESOMENESS! LOL!!!!
      It rocks to think of other’s having little “Natalie and Hubby” experiences cause that means you guys were definitely laughing…HAHAHA!!! I am everywhere…squeeeeee!!!!

  10. OMGGGGGG!!!!!!! You kill me, Natalie. This is awesome. I have Boobcorn a lot. 🙂

  11. Hubby aka The Blog Heckler says:

    Boobcorn/Crotchcorn – I like munching on it all! Yummy!

  12. I put down my drink first this time, Natalie! Aren’t you proud of me? Then I doubled over with laughter at the coffee shop. There may have been snorting. I don’t think that manager over there is going to throw me out for that loud cackle. “Hey, lady, I’ve only been nursing this drink for two hours and if you had read this post, you’d be cackling too.” Y’all are fabulous and hilarious. I am so adding “crotchcorn” to my vocabulary.

    • Yeahhh Julie – no spillage! LOL!!!
      WAHAHAHAHA!!! Luv it that there was snorting. That ROCKS!!!
      Enjoy using crotchcorn and watching family and friends giggle. LOL!!

  13. That’s just too funny. Very occasionally will I drop a piece of popcorn on whatever top I’ve worn to the theater, but I’m always mindful of the butter…and the fact that stain removal is NOT one of my talents. Consequently I’m pretty careful. When I’m home I eat it with a spoon, like cereal (because I’m almost always at my computer or reading…and I just don’t like butter on my fingers).

    • Eat popcorn with a spoon – LOL – that’s taking great care Kristy. Yes butter stains are a definite concern hence the reason I switched over to the white cheddar powder. LOL! 🙂
