Scattered across the vast wastes of the internet, you come across many different versions of this worryingly addictive game. But this is not the kind of bingo involving numbers. Rather like university-level maths, numbers have long since vanished; we’re using letters now – or whole sentences.
And so, for your bingo-playing pleasure, as of 18th January 2011, I’ve collected a grand total of thirty-four different versions of bingo ( “am I covertly homophobic” bingo appears to have been removed from DeviantArt, and is no longer available, and neither is Rape Apologist Bingo 2, originally hosted on Flikr, and written by Jeff Fecke, a Shakesville contributor). A big thank you to Cara at The Curvature for her very comprehensive list – it made my job a lot easier!
Since first creating this list, I’ve come to realise that I’d been guilty of a huge oversight – I hadn’t provided any kind of plain text to go with the pictures I’d put up. When the time came to add to the collection, I decided that I could kill two birds with one stone; I could have a massive redesign of the structure, and also redesign the cards themselves. And, as it turns out, it’s not very sensible to provide only links to pictures – I’ve now lost two great cards to the mists of time, because I didn’t make copies of them when they were available. So on this page, there’s an alphabetical list of all of the cards I’ve got. You can click on any of those names and it should link to my text version of the card. Alternatively, I’ve categorised them roughly into groups in the sidebar, which you can browse through if you’ve got a lot of time to waste!

Obviously, if I’ve miscredited anybody, if there’s one I’ve missed, or if any of the “authors unknown” wish to make themselves known, please shout. Otherwise, just feel free to enjoy the vast amounts of sarcasm gathered in one place!
Disclaimer: these cards are not mine, have never been mine, and never will be mine. I didn’t write any of them. What I did do, sometimes, was copy the words that others had written into plain text. Since the words weren’t mine to begin with, I can’t – and won’t – stake any kind of claim on them. Anybody who wants to is welcome to copy the text that I’ve put up. However, please remember to attribute the cards to their original owners. If you felt like attributing the plain-text to me, that would be nice, but isn’t actually necessary.
