CINCINNATI - The projectiles are lighter than horseshoes and safer than lawn darts, but the idea's the same: Players try to hit a target several paces away. The game is called cornhole, or corn toss, because players try to throw cloth bags filled with corn into a hole. It is an Ohio phenomenon that is catching on elsewhere around the Midwest and beyond.



"It's easy to play, you don't have to dig a pit, drive stakes or tear up your lawn," said Mike Whitton, founder and president of the American Cornhole Association.


You don't have to work up a sweat, either. About the worst thing that could happen is you could spill your beer. (Although it is not a drinking game by definition, alcoholic beverages often are consumed. The Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. sponsors tournaments, and the game is played at some Ohio bars.)


Beanbag games in various forms have been around for generations. Local players say the corn bag game originated in Cincinnati specifically the city's west side, where Whitton grew up although many lay claim to it.

I thought "to Cornhole someone" was ass sex. Straight or gay.

Used in a sentence...

"I'd love to Cornhole her!"

BAM
