BINGLE: The Impromptu Jam

Today JamZone recounts an incident in the early days of the Jam, when Grape, Brandy, and King were only beginning to appreciate its complexity, sheer power, and disastrous side effects.

On a typical weekend night of drinking and disregard, the boys had rounded up some of the crew for a poker game. JamZone isn't too sure how the cards fell that night, but legend has it that King, in a strange combination of beer-fueled hunger and creative splendor, cobbled together one of the finest Impromptu Jams in recent remory.

There were beers everwhere. A dish of lime Jello sat in the fridge, lonely and unguarded. A can of Pringles stood on the counter.

King swooped up the Pringles, crushed up two handfuls and threw them into the Jello. A cup of beer was needed to soften the sharp edges of the delightful potato shrapnel atop the Jello. He swirled the ingredients to a fine slurry, then poured it down the edge of the bowl and down his throat.

Thus BINGLE was born.

Similar expirements with BICE (beer, Jello, and Rice) were less successful.

It should be added that no one save King had a single thing to do with the invention of Bingle or its eventual consumption. At the time, as I recall, we were all horrified and disgusted and swiftly told King that his head was broken and required fixing. My thoughts on Bingle have not changed in hindsight. Still, Bingle was a Classic Jam.
