Any bar game that lends itself to dumb sex puns is clearly ripe for being a brief, silly trend.

"The game is drawing rival leagues, equipment vendors, and big sponsors. The four-year-old American Cornhole Association boasts about 20,000 members, who aren't required to pay dues. Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc., the Chicago Tribune and Visa are among the sponsors of the first Windy City Cornhole Classic on July 28 at Soldier Field, home of pro football's Chicago Bears. Beer companies often sponsor local leagues.

"The maker of Golden Tee, one of the most popular coin-operated videogames of all time, recently launched a game called Bags. The company says it already has sold 3,200 of the bar-friendly games, so many that it can't fill new orders until August. A team of independent filmmakers recently completed filming 'Cornhole: the Movie,' a mock documentary reminiscent of the film 'Dodgeball.'"
