WARNING!!!

DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT, PLAY BEER PONG WITH A BUNCH OF TWENTY-SOMETHINGS.




WHILE DRINKING NUMEROUS GIN AND TONICS!




OR YOUR BACK YARD MAY LOOK LIKE THIS THE NEXT DAY.




AND YOU MAY WAKE UP THE NEXT AFTERNOON LOOKING LIKE THIS!





!!!YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!



Edit: Barman asked me what beer pong was. Since everyone doesn't know what it is, I am posting the rules.

Long Island Style

  1. Cups are arranged, 10 on a side, in pyramid formation, as shown.
  2. Three beers per side, evenly distributed.
  3. Each team of two starts off with one ball. Players throw the ball across the court, trying to get the ball in a cup. When a ball lands in a cup, one player from that side must chug that cup, and it is removed from the play area (pushing it to the side is OK). When both players on a team sink a cup, they get the balls back.
  4. Drinking is alternated. One player drinks the first cup, the other drinks the second, the first player drinks the third, and so on. Throwing can either be alternated or done two at a time. Some people think that throwing two at a time improves accuracy, but studies are inconclusive. It's up to you and your partner.
  5. As soon as the ball touches anything, including a cup, it's fair game to be grabbed. If it bounces in, great, but you'd better hope your opponents have no reflexes. Bouncing it in counts for two cups.
  6. Cups are restacked into pyramids when 6 cups and 3 cups remain on a side.
  7. When 4 cups remain on a side, restack them in a diamond formation.
  8. When 2 cups remain, they are placed one in front of the other.
  9. When one cup remains, it is placed in the corner of the table.
  10. When the last cup on a side is hit, the losing team has the opportunity to match, getting one or two balls to shoot depending on whether or not the winning team used both shots. If the losing team manages to clear all of the winning team's cups while matching, both teams resume the game with three cups and one beer per side.
  11. Any cups left on the side of the winning team must be consumed by the losing team.
  12. If a player, for any reason whatsoever, drops a ball into a cup on his own side, he must drink it. Additionally, his teammate has the right to smack him on the head for being such a dumbass. There can be no exceptions to this rule.
  13. If the ball is still spinning in the cup, only girls can blow it out. If the ball gets wet, though, then it is declared in the cup.
  14. Winning five games in a row qualifies you as a dynasty.

Noted. Now what is beer pong. I must admit, I am impressed you turned out looking that good trying to hang with that pack. I am not sure that I would even be up.
