Imposing Morality?

Statenet provides this tongue-in-cheek account of a cancelled event in Iowa:

NEVER THOUGHT WE'D SEE THE DAY, but consuming copious amounts of corn has become a no-no at the University of IOWA. As noted by the Iowa City Press-Citizen, the school recently called off a corn-in-the-cob eating competition that was to be a part of the school's normal "Beat State Week" festivities that precede the annual football game against Iowa State. The reason, school officials say, is that the event would "encourage gluttony." We hear that if this one works out, sloth, lust and avarice are the next targets.
