More “Beer Pong” News

Scouts on a camping trip were given beer and cigarettes by their scoutmaster, it is alleged. Police arrested scoutmaster Michelle Edwards after a park ranger came across the scouts playing "beer pong". Although Edwards denied the charges, claiming the contraband had been smuggled onto the trip, video footage from a local store clearly showed her and two of the scouts buying the beer, said a spokesperson for the Bossier Sheriff's Office. Can you get a badge for "beer pong", I wonder ( - with video).

And even if there isn't a badge, wouldn't the title of "Beer Pong Champion of 2009" look good on your resume? Four students from the University of Nevada have hatched a plan to stage the world's largest "beer pong" tournament, in Nevada, in August this year. A thousand two-player teams are expected to compete for the title and the $10000 first prize (Nevada Sagebrush).

I can't stand the taste of beer, so I'd have to play "white russian" pong ... which would be a much shorter game, cause after two of those, I'm falling asleep. Suddenly, I feel old.

I once went out bar-hopping with a bunch of (college) students doing a "work experience" semester, a couple of who I was supervisor to. We all got very drunk, to the extent that I did the "Foxy Lady" dance from Wayne's World, which had only recently been on at cinemas, on the tables at one bar.

Next morning, they were all up bright and early and none the worse for wear, while I was still practically comatose. Oddly, though, I was the only one who could remember everything from the night before, so could explain why one guy was covered in scratches (he'd fallen out of a tree he had climbed to get a better view of whether the coach home was coming), or knew whether another should ring the phone number he found in his pocket or not (I wouldn't say, he didn't call, and she was gorgeous). So I guess age has its benefits as well as drawbacks.

A merit badge for beer pong. Don't be ridiculous. It's Texas, after all. They get a badge for binge drinking, duh.

@Nethie - You be careful drinking those things. Next thing you know people will be pissing on your rug and you'll be getting harassed by nihilists.
