There’s an old saying that goes something like “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” but we at mFortune see being told not to do something as a bit of a challenge.
While there’s nothing wrong with the traditional Bingo calls, we figured that a lot of them are pretty out-of-date considering it’s 2018.
“Tom Mix” for example, was a star of silent movies. “Doctor’s Orders” refers to a laxative (nice!) given out during WWII. Bingo nicknames aren’t exactly something we can all relate to anymore.
With that in mind, we decided to update some bingo calls for 2018. Ya know, give them a bit of a facelift. We may not use bingo calls in our mFortune Bingo rooms, but if we did these would be on the list!
See what you think of our updated bingo calls, and be sure to send us your suggestions on Facebook:
You Ok Hun? – 1
When someone states the obvious: You Okay Hun?
When someone puts their foot in it: You Okay Hun?
BB not calling the number you need when you’re 1TG: You Okay Hun?
When someone is in a bad mood: You Okay Hun?
It’s the phrase that works for just about anything so it was only fitting it made our list of updated bingo calls for 2018.
Contour – 4
Guys, this one may go over your head but we bet the ladies will know what we’re talking about here! The make-up trend made famous by the Kardashian Klan that’s all about creating chiselled cheekbones and a picture-perfect jawline – the contour – just had to make our list of new calls!
That’s Lit – 6
Back in the 00’s if you approved of something, it was “cool”. Before then, you’d describe it as “groovy” or “awesome”. In 2018, it’s “lit”. So “That’s Lit” becomes our up-to-date bingo call for number six!
Internet Meme – 15
In 2018, everyone loves a good internet meme. Whether they make you laugh or say “OMG that’s so me!”, it’s pretty much impossible to go a day without seeing one. So well done memes, you’ve made it on to our list of updated bingo calls!
Tag a Mate – 38
You can’t have a meme without tagging your mates in it so they can relate too. It’s basically rule number one of the internet. So we couldn’t have memes on our list of new bingo calls without dropping this one in there too.
Instagram Story– 40
We all know someone who’s all about “Doing it for the ‘gram”. You go out for dinner and can’t touch it ‘till it’s cold because they need to get the perfect shot for their Instagram Story. This new bingo call is an ode to them. PS. If you don’t know anyone who does this, it’s probably you!
Aperol Spritz – 66
Much like a Cosmopolitan was the drink of the ‘00s – thanks Carrie Bradshaw – the Aperol Spritz is having a moment right now.
Love them, hate them or ever tired one; anyone who’s anyone is ordering one of these bright orange cocktails and snapping it for the ‘gram so we couldn’t leave it of our list.
