A COUPLE ordered corn on the cob at a take-away — and got sweetcorn in a bread roll.
Paige Hart, 24, and William Maddock, 32, spotted the gaffe only when they took it home.
The corny blunder at their regular kebab shop is because “cob” is a local word for a roll.
Carer Paige said of the Nottingham mix-up: “We’d been to a pub and on the way home popped in at about 10.30pm.
“We ordered our usual half-chicken combo, kebab and chips. But I fancied corn on the cob.
“William said they wouldn’t sell them, but I asked if they did. The man behind the counter said, ‘Yes, my darling’.
“The total was around £12 and we paid £2 for what we thought was corn on the cob.
“But we got home and were gobsmacked. We thought it was a joke. Now I think he was oblivious to it. There was probably a language misunderstanding too.
“I didn’t eat it as it didn’t look nice.

“But we didn’t ask for a refund as it was a mistake — an amusing one. We’ll keep using the shop. But I doubt we’ll order corn on the cob again.”
The couple also tweeted a snap of their order.
Decorator William said: “Once we got over the shock we found it funny.” The Grill Town shop was unavailable for comment.
