Totally unconnected, but cannot resist posting this.. Now that you have learned a little about Bingo, may be you want to print some tickets to play the game.. just head over to http://chandoo.org/wp/2008/07/16/bingo-housie-ticket-generator-excel/

I've always been partial to "arm wattle" myself.

@Susan: Wattle! I haven't thought about that word since "Ally McBeal" went off the air. In case you've forgotten: http://tinyurl.com/6cov72

I prefer bat wings. That's what I call mine, the result of losing a lot of weight. But I really like bats a lot, and could take bingo or leave it, so there's that. Any reason to talk about bats, I suppose.

I thought Bingo was the name of a farmer's dog...

In my home region, bingo is played by many older ladies--and I'm from the Midwest, not the UK.

Carol Burnett used to call it "Under-Arm Dingle-Dangle".

I may be wrong, but it's my opinion that bingo wings are mainly caused by washing dishes and doing laundry for large families, especially before dishwashers and clothes dryers became common. Hence common in elderly women playing bingo, not golf or tennis. You can test this by holding out a book as if it were a wet shirt or dish with one hand and feeling under that arm with your other hand. Flabby; muscles on top are hard though.

Ah think I'll try me some of them there bingo wings. Do they come with bleu cheese or spicy barbeque sauce?
