Did Old School Punk Rockers NOFX Invent Butt-Chugging? [VIDEO]
Frat bros partaking in mildly homo-erotic rituals is nothing new. Their "brotherly" traditions have been mocked as far back as the 1978 classic 'Animal House' (maybe longer, but we wouldn't know because movies older than that pretty much suck). The drinking fad known as "butt-chugging" recently got thrust into the public eye after an incident involving a fraternity at the University of Tenessee made headlines, but we're not going to get into to that (figuratively and literally speaking). We're here to solve the age old mystery of who invented the most uncomfortable way to drink ever.
Butt-Chugging is basically bonging a beer with your butt as oppose to your mouth. Not only is this an uber-gross way to party, it's also super dangerous. You can die real quick, so don't bother trying it. Everyone seems to think that butt-chugging originated in the 2006 film 'Jackass Two,' but we're not so sure about that.
When we first heard about the butt-chugging scandal (perhaps the most ridiculously named "scandal" in history), we couldn't help but remember a certain NOFX tune from their 2002 classic double album '45 or 46 Songs That Weren't Good Enough to Go on Our Other Records.'
The song in question is called 'Party Enema,' and it goes a little something like this:
You get a funnel tube / Pour in a 40oz / Pull down your clothes, touch your toes / Grab a hose, plug your nose, it's a party now
Did NOFX believe that anyone would be stupid/crazy enough to try this (aside from them)? Probably not, but here we are in 2012 and people are drinking beer through their butt. Maybe the Mayans were right.
