After trying a beer bong for the first time a few months ago (at age 27 - I’m such a slacker!), I got to wondering about where the word came from. It seemed rather apt, since, just like a marijuana bong, it allowed one to consume a large amount of his choice intoxicant very quickly.
Also, which came first: the marijuana bong, or the beer bong? Is one term derived from the other, or did they both evolve independently?
(It should go without saying that instructions on how to build marijuana bongs and talk of similar illegal activities are verboten in this thread.)
