It was already taken by Mateus so doesn't count. And retarget your damn.
Is using a search engine okay? I was just using my eyes.

I retarget my damn.

(I didn't put any search engine rules in, but it's nice that little words and pix can't be found that way. )

(I thought I had Brussels, as in the sprouts, but it was too early, dagnabbit.)

Just to clarify, I used the search engine just to find the teh, since it's just so damned hard to spot it by eye. Is that cheating?

I say it wasn't cheating when you did it since the rules didn't say you couldn't. I was asking for a clarification for the future.

I don't think so. I envisioned people doing it by hand, as they encountered the posts, but it's not against the rules. Though it could be if the judge wants to say so at the beginning.

A stretch but can I have "Fox News," please?

(It includes the link http://www.fox5sandiego.com/news/ksw...0,491907.story. Fox and News, no? No?)

London again: http://message.snopes.com/showpost.p...2&postcount=72

It's not the same London, because it's in a different post.

This is the only post I've found that has anything close to "Aussie" in it. I'm not going to count it until I get a judge's decision, but I am claiming dibs.

Okay, folks, here's the judges decision:

GenYus can claim the "teh" and the kitty picture.

Chloe can claim the "teh" (thanks to GenYus) and the doggy picture. A link to Fox News doesn't count, even if it has the words fox and news. The quoting of a post that has already been claimed can't be claimed again, that rules out your "London". Sorry, Chloe.

Mateus has another kitty picture. Also, his "Fux News" is close enough and will be counted as "Fox News".

Using the search engine is allowed. There's nothing against it in the original rules, and we counldn't enforce such a rule anyway. It's the game masters responsibilty to include things in the bingo card that can't be searched (if she or he deems that necessary).

EQ Taft delivers a Bachmann.

Now I'm waiting on "Aussie". Is there a cricket thing scheduled for this year?

Maybe the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand will bring a mention? Apart from that, SatansHobbit has been seen reading this thread, so watch out for his posts!

ETA: I forgot to mention it above, but "Australia" isn't counted for "Aussie".


In other news: pictures of platypups will be accepted as substituts for cats and dogs!
