Staff had corn on the cob for dinner.
Unexpectedly, Jeff was extremely interested in the corn.
Jeff swatted, poked, and batted until he was granted access to a corncob. He then tried to fit the whole thing in his mouth, nearly succeeding.
Staff cut off some kernels for him, all of which Jeff ate readily.
Staff now realizes that Jeff had been guarding the garden corn for purely selfish reasons.
