Fun without the hangover?

Here’s a interesting fun post from statehornet.com about the only college water pong club in existence.

“I learned of the actual sport of water pong while attending an event put on by Sacramento Pong Circuit almost two years ago. At this event, and all future events that I attended, cups placed at opposing sides of a table were all filled with water and none were consumed, rather, they were simply moved to the side,” Scandone said. “That is not to say that I had not been aware of other, more dangerous sides, of where the sport came from since high school.”

This story has a The Onion quality to it, huh? Keep reading…

This is why Scandone included language in the club’s constitution discouraging members from involving themselves in alcohol drinking games, citing risk factors such as the heightened risk of transmitting the herpes simplex 1 virus. This virus causes cold sores, and cases have jumped 230 percent since 2007 in beer pong players aged 17 to 21.

Yikes. Alrighty then. At this point, I think I’ll take the hangover.

  1. Obviously they need to up the alcohol content to kill the virus. While “Everclear Pong” doesn’t have the same ring as “Beer Pong,” 1) it also doesn’t leave a ring of cold sores, and 2) the games are a LOT shorter.
