That Would Be in the Butt, Bob

This bored with life -- and the regular, old-school way of imbibing alcohol -- we never want to be: college and high school students are apparently soaking tampons in vodka and inserting them into their butts, all in the name of getting super, super drunk.

Las Vegas TV station KTNV ran a report on "butt chugging," which is a simple, though truly creepy and dangerous practice: Tampons are soaked in vodka and then shoved into, as our aunt used to call it, the duper. Of course, girls can just go the old-fashioned route and insert them into the orifice for which they're intended.

A doctor told KTNV the practice is "the same as if you're injecting alcohol intravenously," meaning you get drunk way faster, with way more intensity, but without any warning signs. Meaning you may not know you're too drunk until, well, you're too drunk.

Also, those who think getting drunk at one end means the alcohol won't show up at the other end -- meaning a breathalyzer -- would be wrong. A doctor tells the KTNV reporter, once the alcohol is in your system from any entry point, it's in your entire system, including saliva.

One college student in the report quipped, "(People) are taking the term too literal, bottoms up."

And yes, he was clearly very proud that he thought of that witicism.

Tell us:

Take Our Poll

Is there any circumstance under which you would try butt chugging?

  1. No. I would inject it intravenously first.
  2. Maybe, if I was super bored.
  3. Yeah, why not? People are too uptight about crazy college kid stunts.

for all you guys who want to try this DONT! when you take alcohol rectally it does not pass through the liver, breaking the alcohol down. when you drink alcohol you liver breaks like 80 percent of the alcohol down. so when you take it rectally none of it gets broken down you get every last drop of alcohol and too much mean you will die. alcohol poisoning is rased through the roof. were talking a half to a bottle of vodka CAN KILL YOU. and there is no tolerance level for this kind of alcohol intake.
