Did I ever tell you that eating oats is like eating come?

Especially when I start the oats cooking before I go to bed, put the pot in the refrigerator while I'm sleeping and when I wake up the oats are already creamy. Sometimes there's even a bitter aftertaste, but oats are much more digestible than come. I know -- come has more protein, but I've been told that protein isn't even digestible! Scientists will neither confirm or deny this rumor -- does anyone know? I'll admit I've never tried eating 2 cups of dried come, brought to a boil with 6 cups of water and a half teaspoon sea salt then simmered for an hour-and-a-half.
