Whatever Happened to Beanbag Toss?


Seriously? Why THAT name?

We (Double Daddy and I) watched HBO's prison-based series "Oz."
Cornhole had a very, very different meaning.

We (Double Daddy and I) watched MTV's "Beavis and Butthead."
Cornholio (clearly from the Latin root: cornhole) had a very, very different meaning.

Beanbag toss is oodles of fun, and trust me, we play it; but when it comes to it's 'other name,' I just can't bring myself to say it.

Thank. You. ;)

I grew up playing beanbag toss, and I bought the game for the girls last year.

I may be showing my age (???) [or maybe just my geography = deep south], but the "cornhole" game is new to me, too.

And it also reminds me of Beavis and Butthead.

Hee hee!!!

(LOVE the tshirts over the head!!!!!)

Oh my gosh, I am dying of laughter! I guess it didn't phase me -- down here in the deep, deep south it has always been "cornhole" and nobody even brings up a nefarious meaning -- even some pretty raunchy folks! I guess I do have a distant memory of calling it "beanbag toss" up in Virginia. I LOVE the photos!
