Is there interest in a new round of Snopes Bingo?

If so, here are the rules:
1. There is only one bingo card per game.

2. You mark a square off by being the first to post in this thread quoting or pointing to the post in which the phrase or smiley is used.

3. First claimant gets to count the square; if it’s not you, you have to wait for the phrase to appear again.

4. Phrases and smileys only count in the body of a post.

5. The judge is the person who creates the bingo card; the judge’s decision is final.

6. Close paraphrases are ok; judge decides what counts.

7. The winner gets to make the next card and be the next judge.

8. You cannot claim a phrase used in this thread, or in your own post in another thread.

9. You may only use posts made since the current bingo card began. i.e., in this case, after the timestamp on this post.

10. You are responsible for keeping track of the squares you have been awarded.

11. The first person to get all nine must post here with the words “SNOPES BINGO!”

12. Other rules may be added as we go along, in case there's something I haven't thought of, not just to mess with your minds.

Added later:

13. The use of search engines is allowed.

14. One post can be claimed for several squares if it has several matching phrases. If one player doesn't claim all phrases from one post, others can claim the same post.
And here is a new bingo card:
