Summer is the season for fresh corn on the cob and you think of having it at a barbeque or at some special party but actually you can have it every day, in your office, by making corn on the cob in the microwave. Here's how you do it. Grab two ears of corn. Husk them. Wrap them in wet paper towels. Put them into your microwave, on high, for no more than five minutes. Take it out of the microwave; it's done cooking. Let it cool down. Take it back to your desk and enjoy.
