Have you ever heard of Innuendo Bingo?June 16, 2014
Listeners of the show send in clips of radio broadcasts or TV shows which contain innuendos, things that the presenters may not have realised they have said or just our dirty minds playing tricks on us. With these clips Scott Mills invites celebrities to join in Innuendo Bingo. They sit opposite another person with water in their mouths and the aim is not to laugh and spray water all over their opponent.
Now obviously this would not be as funny if it was just on the radio so lucky for us you can view it on the BBC website and catch it on YouTube, there is a whole section on the BBC Radio 1 channel just for Innuendo Bingo!
Here is my favourite clip from the ones I have watched so far. I dare you not to laugh!
It got me thinking about a comedy clip I saw a few years about funny bingo calls and typing funny bingo into YouTube I struck comedy gold. OMG some clips are just weird. However here is the clip I was looking for the Indian Bingo Caller by Omid Djalili.
Unfortunately bingo calling is not as much fun as it used to be and when I went with my mum and sister a few weeks ago I was disappointed to not hear any of the traditional bingo calls. There were no fat ladies or ducks and it made me long for the more quirky phrases. I am still unsure over why people go out to a hall to play as it can’t really be the social aspect can it? I mean you are not allowed to talk whilst the game is in process and there isn’t really much time between games to have a good catch up. You could get the social element just as easily in one of the online chat rooms that accompany online sites and some even have special social games like Titan Bingo who even have a Facebook community that you can join.
I have written about my love of online bingo before and even about winning and it is something I really enjoy. Maybe it is the thrill of waiting for the last number on your card to be called, maybe it is the excitement as you look at the jackpot amount or maybe it is the fact I can sit here in my PJs with a glass of wine and no one is any the wiser. Being behind a computer screen certainly has its advantages and if I can win a bit of money or have a bit of fun at the same time then why not. I can definitely think of worse ways to spend my evenings.
