I hear the hardest part is getting the whole bag in the hole.

I think maybe that means something else in the south.

When getting cornholed in a parking lot up north you are often referred to as "the victim".

Yeah, but below the GA AL line you're safe to play the game. Careful what you say in N. GA though.

I can't figure out who ever thought that was a good name...

It sounds especially alarming when they play it at church functions.

There used to be a joke going around in the early 60s about the origin of the term. Not suitable for this forum though.

I'd never heard of the game until I moved to Indiana so I assumed it was a Midwestern thing.

Knew it all my life as Baggo (Bag-o), never heard it called Cornhole until I moved to Yankeeville. Some Ohio natives asked if I wanted to play Cornhole my reaction was pretty much an instant NO.

Is that really a game .......or does this suddenly explain why so many of us drive Miatas?

It's Baggo here in Michigan, too. Cornhole seems to be an Ohio-Indiana thing, from what I can tell.

Cornholing is definitely a mid-western name for tossing bean bags into a hole. There are actual people who play it and talk about it and are seemingly totally and completely unaware of any other meaning of the word. I think they were people that were too old to have ever watched Beavis and Butthead.

The wife now calls it "corn toss" after our neighbor ridiculed her for Cornhole. I still call it corn hole just as a reminder for him to make fun of her. I think she gets the joke.

The term "corn hole" seems to have made it's way to the west coast in the past year or so. I havd never heard it before that.
