Any takers on FreeCycle?

People definitely offer up a lot of dross that wouldn’t be worth the gas to pick up, but this is the strangest one I’ve seen yet:

Offering: corn cobs
Posted by: [redacted]
Sat Aug 23, 2008 10:55 am (PDT)I know it’s a little weird, but you never know.

We bought a large amount of corn, 60+ ears, cooked it, removed the kernels to cook and freeze, and are now left with a large quantity of “used” corn cobs.

We can’t compost them - too many raccoons in the area. We don’t want to throw them away. Perhaps someone with a fireplace can dry them and use them on a fire, or some artist can make something with them.

Must pick up ASAP. We are in Malden. Please call 617-[redacted].

    Find someone with a pellet stove - many of them can handle corn cobs.

    Oh I’m sure some Brownie troop leader somewhere has already snatched them up and has some amazing craft project in store!
