Golf and rugby, have recently been added as Olympic sports for the Rio de Janiero Olympics of 2016. However, beer pong and monkey chug have fallen short in their quest to be taken as legitimate athletic events, and ultimately Olympic sports.
"We need to do a better job of promoting our events," said an obviously tipsy organizer of the beer pong-monkey chug proposal. "It probably wasn't such a good idea to be drunk when we brought this to the IOC. But oh, well. At least we're drunk. I am anyway."
Is this the last we've heard of beer pong and monkey chug, and their quest to be added as Olympic sports? We'll see. But as one supporter said, "Consuming large amounts of alcohol in a competitive setting is what the Olympic spirit is all about. Or something like that."
