Even better headlines: Cincinnati is Crazy for Cornhole

(just in case anyone is too timid to do a google search for "cornhole" here are the real rules for the game)

things like this always make me wonder if the sponsors/promoters are really that out of it, or just sitting in an office laughing thier, um, ass off

No, I don't get it either. I don't know what a cornhole is. Sorry everybody! Now I shall commit seppuku to absolve me of my hideous shame.

Most everyone in Cincy knows the slang meaning of the word. There is much laughing. Of course we ask strangers for a three-way without blinking an eye.

For the record this is a west-side past-time, us east-siders are to haute-toit for such things.

corn-hole: n. poopchute. v. to plumb the depths thereof, perhaps amorously.

Boredomjockey: Thanks for the link, I want the hat.

cortex: I knew the definition, but you put it with such poetry I'm in tears. Thanks!

Oh. Now that I know what it means, I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry.

being from the area, but only living this close to cincinnati in recent years, i too was shocked t hey had a game called cornhole, and it was a popular game. You even see it on tv commercials. We had 'bean bag" tosses in elementary school, I grew out of it. They didn't.

Of course they also like bad chili and eat Goetta which is some of the most disgusting cuisine ever (and they make fun of england, who actually has fabulous food?)

not to mention all the rioting, shootings, questinable mayors, bad teams, and moral superiority regarding porn and art... yeah I hate it here.
