Subject: BS: Wanna' Cornhole?
From: catspaw49
Date: 28 Jul 07 - 08:38 PM

Okay.....So how many of you other preeverts figured this as a sexual reference? ..............uh,yeah..........

This is "Cornhole."

Now I'm 58 years old, grew up in the great unwashed midwest, have always been a student of history and folklore, but I swear to you that until a few months ago I had NEVER heard the word cornhole applied in any way except for anal sex! So imagine my surprise to see an ad in a local weekly paper about a "Two-Man Cornhole Tournament." I mean I knew that we'd become a lot more open in our sexual mores and morals but what the fuck?

Connie and Wayne had both not only heard of it but had often played. Now when I played the game it was just another beanbag toss game and I honestly don't remember anyone referring to it as "cornhole." Matter of fact, that word was common slang of my Dad's generation, at least in the strongly ethnic Italian-American community where I grew up.

And as things often go, after I read that I ran across all kinds of references to the game from all kinds of people all over the place. Seems like everyone but me knew it as Cornhole and many even had a game set in their garage.

So help me out here and let me know if there are different names for other games that I should be aware of so as not to be surprised as happened with Cornhole. I mean, like, uh.....Is there some simple kid's game called Tittyfuck or something I should know about?

Spaw

It reminds me of the pitiful attempt of some people who resent the sequencing of the first four letters of the word "hello" and have tried to interest people in using the term "heaveno".

I'm older than you are Spaw and I too grew up in the Great Midwest. I've worked and lived in Illinois, Ohio, and Indiana and I have never, ever heard of "cornhole" used in this way! We had bean-bag tosses, horseshoes, all sorts of stuff but if you said to someone, "Let's cornhole!" or "Wanna cornhole?" you'd be in a world of hurt.

Thread seepage: I had a boss who would occasionally lapse into Bevis & Butthead routines/voices. There's not much funnier (in a reassuringly strange way) than hearing this coming from an Air Force Lt. Col.

I remember seeing an electric corn cob once in an outhouse.

Spaw-

I don't think there is a kernel of truth to your "Cornhole" story. I believe that you somehow knocked together the whole website that the link leads to so that we would get an earfull.

Cheerily,

Sail with a Hard On makes me think of my friend Lj's Hobie cat which he used to race. Professionally lettered down the length of one hull was the boat's name. So, as Lj got her trimmed just right and the starboard hull rose out of the water, she revealed her name for all to see. Blow Job. No sailing magazine ever printed the photos he sent.

Dave-

An appropriate name for your friend's dinghy might be Breaking Wind.

My favorite pair of names for boat and dinghy are The Golden Hind and The Hind End.

Dave, that reminds me of something that got two TV presenters over here into a spot of bother. Richard McCourt and Dominic Wood had a breakfast show for young teens ("Dick and Dom in Da Bungalow"). There was apparently a section on there called "Wake up with Wood", and the guy was officially reprimanded by the BBC for wearing a T-shirt saying "Morning Wood".

The kids loved it...

Graham.

In 2005 I visited old friends near Wooster, Ohio, who took me to a 4th of July party on a farm out in the country.

One of the games offered for kids was "corn hole" (as it was rendered on the invitation).

"Corn hole?" I asked in disbelief.

"Corn hole," my friends (who are not natives of the area) solemnly replied. They assured me it was common there.

I still have a PDF of the invitation...

Spaw,

I'm with you on this one.

I cannot believe my eyes.

Grew up in WV and I too have never heard the word "cornhole" applied in any way except for anal sex.

I would have serious problems using the term in mixed company even if it referred to a game.

Are you sure that the link is not to a parallel universe?

I'm a midwesterner, with friends both from city and country. I've never heard the word cornhole in my life, whatever the meaning intended.

By the way, everybody who has the means and their sanity bathes regularly.

Amazing, really. I had never heard of such a thing, either.

On a slightly different topic (although one already previously addressed above), let me pass along the title of a rather amazing old-ish blues record I heard on the radio last week: "Blow Job Blues," sing by a female vocalist. Sounded like maybe 1930s-era, with jazz-orchestra instrumentation.

The lyrics clearly made reference to a blow-dried-type hairdo, and didn't even have any obvious double-entrendre reference to oral sex ~ but somebody must have know that that title, and the oft-repeated tag line "I've got those blow-job blues," would have to raise an eyebrow or two.

Spaw - I'm from the intermountain west and I haven't heard that term since the 1950's - and it sure wasn't a bean bag game the cowboys talked about then.

Somehow I suspect this is a dastardly plot by the Man-Boy Love Association - especially that page with all the paraphernalia !

(Spaw, you're no more nuts than usual, as far as I can tell.) The term's a new one for me, for any definition. Either the phrase didn't get to my (northeast) corner of Ohio, or somehow, occasionally, folks watched their vocabulary in front of me when I was a wee slip of a girl.

I must live a sheltered life. Spaw, I never heard the term used for anything, not even for anal sex, as you mention in your first post.

In Britain, when we pop corn, we do it in a pan, or more recently in a microwave. Clearly, I must be careful when asking for it in the States!

As soon as I saw the picture of the Cornhole board I thought "That looks familiar". Here in south-east England we have a game called Toad in the Hole and it seems they are related.

http://www.tradgames.org.uk/games/Pitching-Discs.htm

The real game is played with brass disks and the table top is a slab of lead not that feeble commercial version.

I've never heard any obscene interpretation but the more common meaning is a meal made with sausages in Yorkshire pudding batter.

Hmmmm...
