"It's all up in flames! Just like my first marriage!" ― Corny
Corny is a male character competing in Open Source Objects.
He's kind and acts crazy but he keeps his craziness on the inside and only uses it strategically when he thinks it's necessary. He’s good at distracting people. He is very rational and logical and points out whenever someone is acting emotional. He is good at leading and directing people. He tends to come off as uncaring when in actuality he points out people’s mistakes to help them learn. He is very good at quickly coming up with a plan. He loves literature and wants to write a book one day.
Corny is a yellow, rectangular slice of corn on the cob.
Episode 1 - "Who the hell recommended Glowing Heart"
Corny first appears in the challenge with three balloons tied around his body. He strongly rejects Holly's proposition of just falling straight down. Instead, Corny conjures an anvil, which he, Holly, and Tart cling on to. Despite seemingly going to be safe, Corny is suddenly booted off the anvil by a falling Pitcher. Corny does not survive the fall and is automatically put up for elimination.
Episode 2 - "Your Opinion is Invalid"
Corny was resurrected off-screen. He got the fewest votes among the eight put up for elimination, at 23, therefore winning immunity from the challenge as well as an ice-cold refreshment (which Loren stole on his way out). The only time Corny appears during the challenge is when he talks to Crayon Box after he doesn't get the joke she told about Vape and Inhaler.
Episode 3 - "The Good, The Bad, and The ********"
Before the elimination, Corny is seen stacking his anvils.
In the challenge, Corny is placed on Green Crayon's team. He suggests that the group put on a comedic play. During the play itself, Corny plays a boulder hurtling towards the characters. When Retainer calls him out for taking his line, Corny drops the boulder on himself, killing himself off. Extension Cord, stepping in as Corny's character's daughter, mourns his death, but the tragic scene suddenly turns into a stand-up routine. Corny is then kicked off-stage by Retainer, which knocks Coaster into the spotlight.
The team's disjointed and messy play is ranked the lowest by the judges, putting Corny and the rest of the team up for elimination.
Episode 4 - "The Butterfly Effect"
Corny is spared during the elimination, with Crayon Box commenting that he is the first contestant to be up for elimination more than once. During the challenge, he attempts to build some sort of contraption out of anvils to help him catch a butterfly, but only ends up injuring himself. In the end, his contraption is (somehow) reduced to a pile of burning rubble, sending Corny into despair. As Tart tries to comfort him, Holly points out the bugs stuck in Tart's dollop. Corny prevents Tart from shooing them away and convinces her to use them to save the group. Corny, along with Holly, Tart and OSO Novel, turn in these butterflies and are safe from elimination.
- Corny is the first character to be up for elimination twice.
- As of The Butterfly Effect, he is joined by Blob and Vape.
- Corny is the only contestant to have a y added to the end of their name that isn't already in the name of the object they are.
- When Corny fell down to his death, his dead pose at that scene became a running gag.
- In The Good, the Bad, and the ********'s intro, he has the same dead pose.
- Another running gag Corny has is saying "wow, what a relief!" every time he's safe.
