Popping in, and laughing:
I'm so glad my cheekiness had some use, and was accepted - FTR I did not know it was bingo related at all, I thought Don was seriously jonesing for non-cat/dog pet pics. So, as any good kiwi would, I picked up a stick and started stirring.

I see nothing that would speak against it. I even did it myself (post 6 on the first page).

Just to make it clear, in case a player misses that opportunity, the same post can be claimed for another entry by another player, too.

We've got three for Chloe (, Beer, song), four for Mateus (unchanged) and four for Mad Jay (beer, song, Bush and a non-mother-suitable joke).

Mad Jay: 8
Mateus: 6
Chloe: 4

...and no, the piece of grass in the picture Mateus linked to above doesn't qualify as "landscape".

To elaborated on what I said above, there doesn't need to be a snopster in front of the landscape, either. Any picture that shows landscape will do. In my definition, that means the picture needs to show a horizon or the place where a horizon should be hidden by a forest or mountains or something similar.

ETA: Chloe, can it be true that you found nothing on the board yet that you wouldn't say in front of your mother?

I thought Mateus is claiming rain on that post, not a landscape.

Yes, that's landscape-y enough.

Snopes Bingo goes to Mad Jay!

To bad I won't be online the next days, so I can't play Mad Jay's score card.

Yay! thank you!.. Now for the tough part: setting up the score card


Name of a US city.......Biden........any acronym
any non-English..............hir.............sex
word*
google.........................great..........:con fused: smilie


* for the purposes of this game, dictionary.com and google translate will be used as reference. For a word to be considered a non-English word, Google translate should translate the word into English and it shouldn't appear in dictionary.com Please note that any word that is in the dictionary will be considered an English word even if it's borrowed from a foreign language. So, for example conquistador is an English word, but conquistar will be considered a non-English word. Proper nouns, acronyms, misspellings of English words, and slang excluded (context will be taken into consideration here)
