Van Wilder Unrated question

I received a copy of Van Wilder "R-Rated" 2-DVD set for my birthday. I saw the movie in the theater, and loved it. I have a few questions regarding the DVD, however:

1) What additional material/scenes is there on the Unrated DVD?
2) Someone told me the menus on the Unrated DVD feature a topless woman - does the R-Rated DVD also have this feature?
3) Is the Unrated version also a 2-disc set?
4) Is it worth my time/effort to return the one I got for the Unrated version?

Thanks in advance.

1. A thirty second scene involving a kid who can make farting noises with his stomach when Van is auditioning people to be his new assistant.
2. Yes, both discs include "censored" and "uncensored" menus with a woman going topless every time you make a menu selection.
3. Yes.
4. If you like "censorship," sure.

1) Just minor things, such as the already-mentioned fart noise scene and couple more lines from the gay guys.
2) Yes, the Unrated has a topless woman that you can watch censored or uncensored, but the R-rated version only has the censored version. The Unrated version also has some easter eggs of the menu chick (who is Naomi in the film by the way) dancing around in a wet t-shirt.
3) Yes, it is a 2-disc set
4) Yes

"Testicles of The Animal Kingdom – interactive quizzical"

Is this really necessary? I will also stick with my original 2-disc unrated set.

I'm surprised they're making a sequel without Van Wilder.

The best thing about the old DVD, is the girl on the menu.

Can anybody compare the old, unrated release with the new "Van Gone Wilder" one? Are the topless menus still there? How about the Naomi easter eggs? Anything new added?

Anything different about the transfers? The compression rate?
