Oh Dear…Kids Are ‘Butt Chugging’ Wine (i.e. Doing Alcohol Enemas) To Get Drunk Now?

In the most disturbing food news on Eater this morning, kids are apparently doing alcohol enemas–and cleverly referring to it as “butt chugging”–to get drunk now. Unshockingly, this trend has already led to the hospitalization of a 20-year-old frat kid at the University of Tennessee, who was admitted for alcohol poisoning with blood-alcohol levels well over 0.40% (five times the legal driving limit of 0.08%).

The kid is lucky enough to have a father who’s denying the reports (he wants the family to have a chance to get “their side” of the story out…although the family is currently “investigating” to find out what that is), but I think we can all agree that this serves as a good cautionary tale. Plus, remember vodka tampons and eyeball shots?

Kids, you don’t score points for learning how to absorb alcohol through a new bodily orifice. Getting drunk through your digestive system is still totally cool. (Plus, alcohol already comes with enough potential for embarrassment without getting enemas involved.)
