Fine arts student David Woodward was invited to display his art at a Queen's University campus event. But when he showed up on the morning of the event and started setting up his piece called "All I Am Is What I've Felt," the event organizers told him the work was "inappropriate" and "not nice to look at" and asked him to remove it, which he reluctantly did. The piece consisted of ten pairs of embroidered underwear hanging on the wall.
Woodward is upset that he was booted out of the event. He says he wasn't trying to shock anyone. He insists that, "I brought what I felt was my best work at the time." He's surely telling the truth because the hanging underwear was also his final thesis project at the university. [northumberlandtoday.com

Which is to say, he's got a kickstarter campaign
to fund his idea of manufacturing "Snowballs: Cooling Underwear for Conceiving Men." Apparently, if a guy is trying to get a girl pregnant, his fertility increases if his dangly bits are slightly chilled.
Wasn't there an episode of Cheers
where Sam wore frozen underwear to boost his fertility?
