    The correct term is ‘beanbag’. It’s always been beanbag and will always be beanbag. Stop trying to promote homosexuality, anal sex in general, and filthy language in general in print, broadcast, and in public. Many people see what you’re trying to do.

      The cornhole game is referred to by many different names such as bean bag, tea bag, stool push and sink the fudge. I guess it all depends on what part of Pennsylvania it’s played in. Definitely a strange game. I think it originated in the Skook.

        Hmm…I’ve never heard it called anything else than beanbag until recently, from the first time I played it in the Cub Scouts to when we played it at family picnics. I must have grown up in one of the ‘better parts’ of Pennsylvania, or was it just in a better time…

    I always lose at cornhole tournaments. My buddies always tell me I’m taking one for the team……..whatever that means.
