'Bud Pong' pulled; brewer shocked beer used in game
Now THIS is more shocking than Fitzmas

ST. LOUIS (AP) Anheuser-Busch (BUD) will discontinue a national promotion called "Bud Pong," a drinking game the company says is supposed to be played with water.

However, participants in the game played with a ping pong ball and plastic cups often were drinking beer as they lost points, according to a front-page story Sunday in The New York Times.

<snip>
"It has come to our attention that despite our explicit guidelines, there may have been instances where this promotion was not carried out in the manner it was intended," Anheuser-Busch spokeswoman Francine Katz said in a statement Tuesday.

Katz says the promotion was meant to provide a fun activity at bars.


Can you believe that? People actually drink beer in a bar instead of water. The ghost of Fitzmas past must be at work.

1. you haven't lived until you've played strip air hockey
strip darts or strip 8 ball at a gay bar. In the summer. Belts, cellphones, sunglasses and accessories don't count as clothing items.

I had to rethink the whole freeballing thing several times until I got better at air hockey, and believe me you don't want to bend over a pool table for a long shot in the buff if you haven't cleared the table by your eighth shot.
