Was he a farmer? Did he have a dog? Well then.

Did he want to leave the Congo?

"Runs through bingo hall yelling bingo with pants down."

Probably some demented old man.

"YOLO tattooed on knuckles."

Hmmm. I may have to rethink that.

Maybe he was an ex-con calling "PRUNO!" Enough of that hoity-toity Thunderbird crap.

Putting the Drebin reference aside - from a linguistics point of view, how can you have "a Bingo"? Yelling "Bingo!" announces that you have attained a state within the game, not that you have obtained an item relevant to the game. The dictionary appears to back that point up:

2. call in bingo: a shout of success, called by a player who has won a game of bingo

Wouldn't it have made more sense to say "It hasn't been confirmed whether he actually had won at Bingo" or "It hasn't been confirmed whether he actually achieved Bingo"?

Did he also have a huge pipe and a spring-loaded derringer up his sleeve?

Was he on a ride-on mower?

How can they not tell? Wasn't he naked?

Hmm maybe it is like a gerund? A bingo is both a state and a thing. "A bingo" is a line that connects points on a graph, basically. The shout "Bingo!" translates to something like, "My card has aligned its points on the graph" or "I have 'a bingo' on my card." Like if I saw you in the street I could point and yell, "FormlessOne!" and it would tell people a) you are a formlessone b) I see a formless one c) a formless one is over there where I am pointing. The meanings depend on context.

You never actually achieve Bingo. You just try to get a little closer every day.

When I die, on my deathbed, I will receive total blackout. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

But, that's the thing, though - per the definition of the term, it isn't an object, but a state. A line formed by achieving aligned values on a card for the game isn't "a bingo." The call refers to satisfying the requirements for winning that game. For example, if you're playing four-corners Bingo, you don't have a line. You win the game by recording the called numbers at the upper-most and lower-most left and right corners of the card. Yet, you would still call out "Bingo!" when you achieved that state. Referring to "a bingo" seems a misuse of the term.

"It hasn't been confirmed whether he actually had won a Bingo"

Not to put too fine a point on it, but it should have read, "...whether or not..."

It is my 2014 resolution to use that sentence in everyday conversation as often as possible.

When you play Slotomania Bingo, you play with yourself.
