He Got Game: Beer Pong

Advice you never asked for by someone who probably shouldn’t be providing any...

“[Beer Pong] is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.” – Yogi Berra

“I see great things in [Beer Pong]. It’s our game – the American game.” – Walt Whitman

These quotes may have been slightly tweaked, but their wisdom rings just as true, if not truer, than their original forms.

Let’s get this out of the way: Beer Pong is great.

Why has such a fate fallen down upon these creatures? Why would evolution do this to them? Perhaps, these slugs were simply all adolescents, experiencing alcohol for the first time like I did in high school. Perhaps their deaths, and all other slug deaths worldwide are due to a lack of control slugs have for the sauce. Do they have rehab facilities for slugs who survive the bender?
