Ball State Business Contest Is Speedy and Icky

In what can be partially described as a sweet publicity stunt, the business school at Ball State University in Indiana hosts an entrepreneur contest called the Nascent 500 that pits undergraduates against one another in a battle for truly high-speed, idea-pitching supremacy. In the back of a limo that is racing around Indianapolis Motor Speedway (how apropos), 12 student teams take 500 seconds to present a winning business plan to judges for a final prize of $10,000 and a quart of milk, customary for the Indy 500 winner (the milk, not the money).

If that's not weird enough, take a sniff at Ball State's only business plan entry to make it into the semifinals: " PooYou.com" by a senior in the entrepreneurship department, the Daily News writes. The site allows customers to send worm feces to your friends (or, more likely, enemies) through the mail.

Says the Web site:

100% Organic, 100% Biodegradable 100% Poo naturally sterilized and odor free but 100% full of emotion along with a package of seeds for your recipient to bury with their Poo along with their bad behavior in hopes that doing something good will help them mend their evil ways.

Do not get on that guy's bad side.
