Earlier this month, employees in Facebook's New York office challenged employees at IAC property CollegeHumor to a game of beer pong via an ad in CollegeHumor's Facebook network. CollegeHumor took the challenge, but as we reported, Facebook's new management forced its employees to back out of the contest. It was an embarrassing development for all those who, like Facebook, call the Valley home — including Valleywag.
So we did only what had to be done. As the local outpost of a Valley institution, we took on CollegeHumor's best and beeriest where Facebook would not. We are pleased to announce, readers, that with our dazzling ping-pong ball throwing skills, Valleywag handily defeated CollegeHumor cofounder Ricky Van Veen's minions. (In perhaps related news, some employees of our parent company, Gawker Media, participated in a larger beer-pong tournament against CollegeHumor and emerged much less victorious, but much more drunk.)
