While it's impossible to say with certainty where and when the game was invented....

Jesus, talk about soul-crushing.  Someone inform the Suicide Prevention Hotline that they might want to start hiring.

That looks like a drunk six year-old painted it.  All that work and the man can't take any pride in the paint job?

Cincinnati Chili is an abomination and it should be destroyed.  Making Cincinnati chili is akin to pouring the milk in before the cereal or putting ketchup on a steak.  It's just plain wrong and you are a bad person for doing it.

Exactly...this game has been played for decades at my family's gatherings, so the claim that it was "rediscovered" in Ohio is dubious at best.  Interesting that it dates back to the 14th century.

Hah, I was walking the dog yesterday and saw a cornhole board in a neighbor's backyard with the arms of the State of Maryland on it. Suck it, Cincy!

I went to college in WI, they called it 'bags' and it was great fun at out door bars.  Lounging, dranking, playing bags on a nice day.  It took a few years to spread to the frats on University ave in Minneapolis.

When I first picked up an iphone I downloaded a free game that was called that, cornhole. I had no idea what it was. Grabbed it purely out of curiosity. My best guess was that it would have something to do with the sort of highly vigorous anal sex that leaves your partner's arse looking like the flag of Japan. 

Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be throwing beanbags at a hole in a piece of wood. Can't say if I was disappointed or relieved.

I'll be honest...I'd cornhole Carmen Electra.

Former foreigner who has been living in Cincinnati for a long time here. I love Cincinnati chili (Skyline > Goldstar, mind). Cornhole is fun, too.

/Them lacheys are nice guys, too.
 
2014-05-29 12:26:14 PM  
And Cornhole is stupid.

The wonder of Cincinnati chili is why anyone would admire it so much.

Do you try to throw corn into a hole?

*clicks link*


yup.

Nothing like the games here. We have weird stuff like this.

"THE NEEDLE'S EYE":

This game is based on a chant of sorts, and is similar to the popular children's game, "Red Rover". In this game, the chanted verse goes like this:

"The needle's eye that doth supply
The thread that runs so true;
I stump my toe, and down I go,
All for the want of you."

A large group of children would be lined up in two rows, about eight feet apart, facing the opposing line. After "singing" the chanted verse, one child would run across to the opposite line and try to break through the clenched hands of the opposite team.

I have a buddy who grew up in Ohio.  When I asked him if he knew what "cornholing" was his reaction was akin to the Homer Simpson .gif where he backs into the bushes.

So not all Ohians call that game by that name.

"Here's how to play"

Here's how to play?

Are you farking kidding me?

We've got so many of these stupid things on the beach that it's hard to get to the water without tripping over one.

Beanbags sailing through the air like swarms of mosquitoes.

Grumble, grumble...

/The only good thing is they've replaced most of the bocci players.

Stephen Spielberg and Sarah Jessica Parker were born there.
IIRC, so were the Isley Brothers.

And my paternal grandmother. And her great grandparents MAY have been part of the Fourierist utopian community just east of there. There's no census of the place that I can find. (If the 19th century had gone Fourier instead of Karl Marx or Adam Smith we'd be a lot happier.)

I like the place and its spooky, oppressive  Victorian commercial district that's almost gone. And it's got a great zoo for the size and prosperity of the place.

I'm down with the "chili", and still maintain that their biggest mistake was calling it chili, but any city that has brown air and is proud of it should probably go.

The first headline I submitted to Fark was from an article in a Virginia news site, about cornhole. For some reason, it wasn't used:

"Cornholers are still Virginians"

Me on vacation: *Opens door to knock, finds three nieces in bikinis*
Them: We're going to the beach, Uncle Vudu, wanna come?
Me: No, You're not.
Them: Yeah, huh. We're going to play corn hole with the boys from the next beach house over.
Me: No you're not. Where are your clothes? Where are your parents?
Them: Uncle Vudu, you're so funny.
Me: Yeah, I'm a funny uncle. Go put some clothes on and tell your parents what you told me.
Them: *giggling and running away*
Me: (to self) Where's my scotch?

I lived in Cincinnati for a few years so of course I had to try the famous Cincinnati Chili...nastiest stuff I've ever had. Sickeningly sweet and so watery, do they run it through a blender for an hour? Sorry but that is NOT chili.
