I am the great Cornhole Palmer

Maybe a stretch to include this in the OCF, but he won the Heisman Trophy in 2002...

Cinncinati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer has setup an amazing charity event known as the Carson Palmer Cornhole Classic to benefit the abused and abandoned children of Lighthouse Youth Services.

While certainly the goals of the event are noble, there are simply too many jokes to apply here. Let's start with the visual...













Now we can go to the text jokes. Carson starts off without any prodding on the press release itself...
“Shae and I got hooked on playing cornhole right after we moved out here," said Palmer.
Now I don't know what circles the young Palmers run in, but whether it be rednecks or experimental sex swingers it can't portend well for the future of his fund-raising career.

Yes, there is an American Cornhole Association. Who knew? Of course, the fine folks at Nabisco have crafted a virtual game...enjoy!

As sad as it is, it's a HUGE Ohio game. I don't know why they don't just call it Bean-Bag toss or something like that, but they play it like mad. (Just in case you don't know you have 2 boards about 30ft apart with holes on elevated ends-about 6-8". The goal is to toss the corn or bean filled bags, socks, whatever you have, through or onto the opponents' hole. 3 points for getting it in the hole. 1 for getting it on the hole. I guess the idea is not to pull out too soon.) So, yeah, the sexual references are WAY too easy.

It's a great game while drinking, btw. Living at Ohio State for 2 years gave me a bit of experience in that.
