Cooler Corn: Another email hoax?

Cooler Corn
Sent in by an alert reader

Have you seen this unusual way for cooking corn on the cob?  Apparently, this email has been flying around the internet.  It was submitted here from an alert reader near Raleigh, NC.

If you try this, please let me know how it turns out.  I'm a little lot skeptical.

Get your Coleman cooler from the garage and wipe it clean, then fill it with the shucked ears. "Next, two kettles-full of boiling water are poured over the corn and the top closed.Then nothing.

When we sat down to dinner 30 minutes later and opened it, the corn was perfectly cooked. My mind was blown. And I'm told that the corn will remain at the perfect level of done-ness for a couple of hours.

Check with Dave Wheelock on how he fixes corn on the cob in a trash can. A new, clean garbage can. It sounds similar to this. Boiling water, ears still in the shucks, lid on, wait, eat.
