    You could go a lot different ways with jokes about the U of Iowa on this story.

    Seriously cancelling a corn eating contest because of gluttony? What is society becomnig? We are a bunch of worthless panty wastes. Eating till you puke is an american tradition!

    Another example of government or people in authority trying to determine what is in the best interest of the public.

    Golly, Iowa is the epitome of corn. Nathan has the hot dogs. Who will do corn eating for us? That is like taking the driver out of the golf bag.

    Hmmmm,

    I would think that since iowa shows up #9 on the Princeton Review of top party schools and something close to that in "most beer" and "most hard liquor", the campus powers that be should concern themselves more with that aspect of campus life instead of sweet corn.

    However, I'm sure that Rob Howe over at hn.com will come up with an op-ed piece on why drinking is no big deal, but sweet corn could be the end of civilization as we know it.

    Best post of the year. Why do I say that? Because I've experienced the irony spoken of here to the tune of a $300 fine.

    Oh my gentle Jesus... promoting gluttony is against university policy, but accommodating students for underage "Thirsty Thursday" binge drinking is embraced. Yet another reason why my children will to to that university over my dead body...

    Probably something about how eating all that sweet corn would have adverse affects on the 'booming' ethanol economy in Iowa by removing it from the market. But binge drinking is A-OK because binge drinking leads to increased taco sales.
