According to a report from Phoenix’s KHPO.com, American teens have turned to a new, and admirably creative (if not disgusting and stupid) way to get off their tits. It involves soaking a tampon in vodka and yep, you guessed it, inserting it into an available bodily orifice.
And this new craze isn’t just restricted to girls – apparently boys are also inserting these cotton smooth party aids up their bums too. ‘Butt chugging,’ which involves inserting a beer bong up there, is also reportedly all the rage at college frat party’s. Nice.
It is supposed that teens are turning to this method of alcoholism because of the ‘rapid onset of effects’ it causes plus the reduced likelihood of parents and teachers detecting booze breath.
“This is not isolated to any school, any city, any financial area,” Chris Thomas, a Phoenix school resource officer, said. “This is everywhere. There’s been documented cases of people going to the hospital with alcohol poisoning just from utilizing it that way.”
The report has both horrified and amused Americans, with one disbelieving US comedian observing the happy smiles of women in Playtex adverts and commenting: “No wonder the women in these commercials look so happy. They’re hammered.”
The story has also led to a swathe of bloggers trying it out for themselves, with one female writer reporting ‘unfavourable results.’ Honestly, what did she expect? Look forward to the days of burning bush love. Only in America.
