Eli Horowitz, editor at McSweeney’s and Roger Bennett, co-authors of Everything You Know Is Pong, talk about how ping-pong explains the world.

For your viewing pleasure, here's the ping pong scene from Stanley Kubrick's film of "Lolita"...
In the 80's, Paul Newman at his charity, Newman's Own, had a "desk" that was a ping pong table. Visitors had to play him before getting down to business. Nixon and Mao paddles were featured.
OMG....that classic photo of henry miller playing ping pong
I'm not sure what your association w/"Pong" was, Brian, but my 1st thought was that it referred to the early video game that you played on your TV!
