All of University of Iowa got 'punked'

Check out this college prank- at the University of Iowa, college students snuck past security last week and used herbicide to carve a message into the turf.

The message engraved on the field reads, “Iowa Sucks.”

Nobody noticed the message in the field last Saturday at Iowa's Homecoming. The game went on with only the word 'sucks' then barely visible at the 5-yardline. But, as the days passed, the entire message revealed itself.

The university just spent millions on renovations and improvements to their field, in fact the school laid down new turf just a few weeks ago. Officials say they're still looking into the culprit. Click here to read the full article.

Random Rant of the day

Have you ever been in a public bathroom and someone was talking on their cell phone while “doing their business?” Does anyone else find this weird? Is it just me, or is there a weird tension in bathrooms that just makes any type of conversation or interaction with people really awkward. Why is that? I guess, maybe that fact people are removing articles of clothing in a room- together- in front of complete strangers, might have a little to do with it.

Funny video of a guy on a ski lift

When you go skiing…there is one thing that everyone always worries about- the ski lift. Somehow getting on and getting off of a ski lift can be the most difficult thing about skiing. Especially for this guy… watch the video below and see what happens.

Men's underwear with 'supportive pouches'

So apparently companies have just released versions of men's briefs that seem to be borrowing an old trick from the Wonderbra: companies are engineering their latest styles to provide more of a lift. Why? Guys who wear tighter pants are demanding undies with snugger cuts. The idea being, these supportive pouches build confidence—or at least that's how the lines are marketed.

Some guy decided to try a bunch of them on, and provide personal reviews about how they “fit and feel.” Somehow, I don't see myself buying a pair of these anytime soon...

1. ADAM PLUS EVE ($25; adam A center seam in the pouch holds everything up; less fabric at the hips prevents bunching under tight jeans. How it feels: "Like wearing your mother's underwear." Watch out for a wedgie.

2. UNICO ($15; This pair is cup-shaped to enhance what nature gave you. Comes with a strip of mesh, if you prefer to walk on the wild side. How it feels: "Too tight. I don't think I could wear them for more than an hour."

3. C-IN2 ($15; A microfiber sling is sewn into the pouch. Slip it on for a lift-and-separate effect (not unlike your girlfriend's bra). How it feels: "Damn sexy." Still, "it could use some instructions."

4. DSQUARED ($79 at Saks Fifth Avenue). These ride lower and the pouch is cut shorter for extra lift. How it feels: "These did fill [me] out more—and they're still fairly comfortable."

Darth Vader and Yoda butter sculptures!

Each year at the Tulsa State Fair, an artist is commissioned to make a sculpture out of butter. In past years, cows, farmers, and baseball players were created out of hundreds of pounds of butter. This year, in celebration of Star Wars's final episode, TSF is featuring Darth Vader and Yoda, made of nothing but butter! Check out the pictures below.
