Bingo Caller Told To Stop Using Traditional Call: Two Fat Ladies

“A bingo caller has been advised to stop using phrases such as “two fat ladies” for fear of offending his audience.

 

John Sayers, who runs charity games in Sudbury, Suffolk, says he was told by a council clerk the traditional bingo call could upset some players.”
 
 
Bingo is a game played by old folks who have one foot in the bingo hall, and the other one in the grave. I have no idea if “two fat ladies” is a traditional bingo call, but I’m all for spicing up the boring came.
 
Maybe Sayers can change his call for “2” to “two stupid ho’s”, but  Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen might sue him.
 
This is an example of political correctness run amok, old ladies with blue hair, liver spots, varicose veins and more wrinkles than Amy Winehouse has pills, could care less if someone calls them fat.
 
The town council members that advised Sayers to stop saying “two fat ladies” are idiots — the word “idiots” might be politically incorrect, but I don’t give a darn.
