I can easily visualize the tampon vodka fun, but the beer in the what, where, huh?

Given that high alcohol consumption is implicated in oral and esophageal cancers, looks like this fad is arriving just in time to restore the oncology business that will be lost to the HPV vaccine.

I'm delighted that when I grabbed my headphones out of my back pack to watch this a tampon fell out.

I like that their "example" vodka bottle on the news set is 1/4 empty.

@26, thank you. This is total bullshit. Though now that the media has suggested it, some girls will surely try it.

The solution is easy easy easy. Make those nasty tampons illegal. Problem Solved.

You know how straight vodka burns going down your throat?

You know what an applicator free tampon feels like going up your vagina?

(People without vaginas: Go shove a cloth covered finger up your ass sans lube for a similar experience. I'll wait.)

Yeah, maybe somebody has tried this. Once. I can't fathom it inspiring a repeat performance.

I remember being warned about this in high school....They just recirculate this every few years to get everyone all in a tizzy about the dangerous ways of our youth. Trust me, the youth are doing plenty of risky and stupid things, we don't need to make them up.

Additionally: Considering that tampons swell when soaked in fluid, how would that work? Shoving a big floppy, wet piece of cotton in an orifice? Seriously?

This whole thing was thought up by some idiotic man who only has a vague idea that ladies put absorbent things in their cooches.

@8: Man, you're like a super-pessimist.

This is definitely nothing new -- I heard about this when I was in high school, which was like 9,000 years ago (give or take). No idea if it's true or not -- I'm a substance abuse librarian and I haven't seen actual research on it, but that doesn't mean nobody's ever tried it. Thing is, you can't rule it out based on the fact it would be painful and burn -- kids are also pouring vodka right into their EYES these days, and that I have seen research on. That can't not sting, right?

Somebody go try both, compare/contrast, report back to Slog.

If they were "telling it like it is" they would say "vagina" or "rectum."

"Body shots" could get ever more interesting. Slice of lemon to cut the fishy taste...

As Tabloid subject Joyce McKinney said of trying to have sex with an unwilling man in response to rape allegations, that's like "puttin' a marshmallow in a parking meter."

How on earth would i get an expanded, boozy tampon in my cooch?

Fun factoid: If you do a Bing image search for bloated tampon, the first hit is Robert Pattinson.

@9 Liz Lemon on "30 Rock" suggested this months ago. And who is 26?

@14 It's worse than you think.

This idea was used in the plot of an episode of CSI. And since I like CSI so much, it was an episode written by the writers of TWO AND A HALF MEN.

True fact, from some Mesoamerican Archaeology course I took: Some of the illustrations on Mayan pottery from the pre-Columbian period show folks using enema bottles to get stoned on various herbal brews.

As far as kids getting stoned goes, dammit, just legalize pot already, before the idiots hurt themselves getting high the hard way.

I've read that this was done in Scandanavian countries for years. Apparently drinks are pretty expensive at highly desirable bars, as are the cover charges. Therefore, girls used this method to pre-game so they could go out to the hottest spots without breaking thier budgets. Don't know if this is true, nor even if it is possible (I lack a vagina to try it out on), but I've read it from several online sources.

I just want to make sure I understand the new code. THERE means vagina, ELSEWHERE means rectum. Right?

This concept is absolutely not new. And it isn't a floppy wad of wet cotton, the tampon isn't removed from the applicator prior to insertion. Which has got to burn like a son of a bitch regardless of which hole is selected. but that has to be a lot less messy than the beer enema.

I remember the good old days, when teenagers were so awkwardly repressed about their bodies that they pretended that no one had an asshole, much less found creative ways to use it.
