Frat boys have been called pigs before, but now they might be responsible for spreading swine flu. College partiers are being warned that they can catch H1N1 from beer pong.
Administrators from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute released this statement after a student contracted swine flu from the classic drinking game:
"While it might seem fun over the weekend, it will not be enjoyable when you and your friends are sick and missing class or midterm examinations."
Wait. Doesn't missing midterms sound more enjoyable than taking them?
I've always been wary of beer pong's potential health risks, so here's one more excuse to stay away from beer cups with dirty ping pong balls floating in them. Cheers!
