I am really not sure what to make of this. Disturbing is really an understatement.

Do they also have best of show in the Buggery Buggy parade?

And apparently it is a team sport, according to the registration form:

The picture of the students happily holding up their index fingers says it all, I think. GO TEAM!

Alls I know is that I'm upping my alumni contribution this year if it goes to these kinds of student programs.

Is cornhole a noun or a verb?

Kathleen said...

Dear Kevstar -- I always thought it was a noun. Shows what I know.

KevStar said...

It can be either of course, but how is it used here? Noun would imply a beauty competition, verb, more of an athletic undertaking.

Kathleen said...

I do know that Backdoor Santa is definitely a noun...
