Do you play cornhole

Sunday Parade where in an article entitled Game Time, "Most fans swill from red and blue plastic cups. Children throw footballs and play cornhole"

Things sure have changed since I was a kid. Just recently for instance "****" Has been approved for use in the tv show

Of course it's always been okay to okay to swill, but cornhole????

I understand and of course in noun form it's a kids' game, but for gosh sake fellas, the verb

@dalehileman,
Are you talking about Parade magazine?
Surely, there is an explanation we are not aware of.

Yes Neo I believe that's what they call/called this Sunday supplement. There's now a ".com"

My reaction also. The only conclusion I can come to: The verbal meaning so common in our youth has so dropped out of common usage as to make it okay with ref to the game

@dalehileman,
Must we educate this feeble generation about the nether words?

@dalehileman,
I doubt there are many who don't understand the vulgar meaning.

@dalehileman,
For years I have know it as an game played in the yard. My sister and her family have Cornhole parties in which the adults turn it into a drinking game.

@Baldimo,
Yet Mo don't you find its use strange as I've cited

Leading me to inquire if I might, what's your age and are you native US

@dalehileman,
It is just another word that has changed over time. Take gay for instance; it used to mean happy, now it means someone attracted to someone of the same gender.

I'm 40 (next month) and I was born in the US. Colorado to be exact.

@Baldimo,
Non straight gay is derived from the French gai, if I am not mistaken.

Far from happy, IMHO

"... the true history of the game is murky at best," though anal sex use came into use around the year I was born, circa 1930.

https://www.google.ca/#q=first+use+of+cornhole+to+mean+anal+sex

It's not entirely clear but evidently popularity as the kids' game followed somewhat later. So I suspect the writer I had cited was unaware of the sexual connotation still very current

And yet Mo I gather you weren't surprised by the citation, and that's why I had asked about your age

Nonetheless interesting you should mention "gay," its new use surprising because originally it was disdainful
