Campus Prank Gone Awry
Duncan Eddy, a student at RICE University, was participating in a time-honored prank on campus called The Baker 13 where on the 13th of the month and at the end of the month students streak across campus with their privates covered with shaving cream. The students then leave prints of shaving cream on windows throughout campus. Eddy was one of these students when his rear end shattered a 9 by 15 window. Eddy now faces a a $15,000 fine and if he fails to come up with the money he will not be able to continue school. Eddy's website called saveduncansbutt.com is asking for student donations to his cause so that he may continue school. Duncan has raised about half of the money already but he gave a statement to the news that said, "People appear to be making this into some kind of joke, and it isn't a joke to me. Some kids are laughing and some are glad that it is not their butt on the line.
