It's not unusual for the aisles in grocery stores to be festooned with odds and ends, such as chip clips on the chips aisle, or fancy fizz-saving bottle caps on the soda aisle, just hanging there in some smartly placed mini-display.

But imagine my surprise — and then my smile today after turning the corner onto the beer aisle and seeing "table-tennis balls," also known as Ping-Pong balls.

Gotta be a nod to beer pong, yes?

I don't think it was an accident.
