New Study Finds College Binge Drinking To Be A Blast | The Onion – America’s Finest News Source:

According to [researcher Dr.] Greaves, much of the UMass team’s research was conducted at a party at this one guy Matt’s place. “My colleagues and I were doing beer bongs, keg-stands, Jell-O shots, Jager shots—you name it,” Greaves said. “We were totally binge drinking and just having a great f***ing time. The best part was the crowd—the study was packed, and there was this amazing random sampling of hot chicks. I was so drunk, I couldn’t figure out what the source of the unusually large hot-chick sample was, but by that point, I really didn’t care.”

When the keg was tapped, Greaves and his team went looking for a place to gather more data. “We heard there was this awesome study on Church Street, but we didn’t have the address, so we just went wandering around,” Greaves said. “We eventually wound up walking into this complete other study where we didn’t know anyone. Unfortunately, it turned out to be totally lame—most of the people there were in the non-drinking control group. We had fun for a little while busting on them, but pretty soon we split.”
