This game, also known as bean bag toss:



Don't feel bad. The first I heard it referred to as cornhole was at this party I attended when I was about 30. It took me by surprise because I thought this dude was propositioning me when he said "Do you want to go play cornhole out back?"

No, they'd be called thugs and arrested.

My thoughts exactly. It's embarrassing for the "adults".
I haven't looked into this very far so I've got to wonder if it was a dry or wet event.

Btwn this and the Kemp campaign ads, Georgia is looking more and more like Alabama everyday.

Cornhole is Cornhole in the south.

It is called "Bags" up north.

Just like:

South: Funnel

North/West: Beer Bong

Funneling beers and playing bags is a great time.

It was reported that the melee started when a beer was thrown, so...yeah.
Apparently the event was sponsored by the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce. LOL.

Well yes, it's a sin to waste a beer like that!
