Here we go: COVIDIOT Bingo Cards!
The other day, I was after reading some of the same nonsense I’d read many times before - in the comments of any number of posts or articles - when I had a thought:
“If we have to deal with this nonsense, we should at least make a fun game of it”
What kind of game, though? Not a drinking game, obviously, as we don’t ACTUALLY want people to die. What about a BINGO card? A good handful of friends - also weary from dealing with so much nonsense online - not only agreed, but were quick to offer up some phrases to be included.
And so, “COVIDIOT BINGO” was born!
Below, find 4 different “universal” cards, and one Canadian Edition card... to start.
I’m totally open to doing up more cards, if needed - if you have an entry for one of the spaces and would like to see it on a future card, leave it in the comments!
Save the images to your device, and print or play from the device - just mark off spots as you come across the sentiments.
Play however you like - straight line, full card, whatever. Challenge your friends!
Note: Everything listed is an approximation. Go with the spirit of what’s posted, you’ll know if the nonsense you come across is of the right “flavour” to gain the spot.
For an extra difficult challenge, see the end of this post.
... And finally, the Canadian Edition!
COVIDIOT BINGO: Mental Health Edition!
Now I’ll admit, it’s going to be incredibly easy to even get “full house” bingos off any of these cards, sometimes by reading only a single comment section. So, I propose a challenge: The Mental Health Edition.
Take one of these cards, and realize that the goal - in this version - is to NOT fill it.
If you find yourself filling it too quickly, take stock of how that’s happening. Is it one/a few certain people on your friends list? The comments on a particular news source?
There are NO rules against modifying your social media experience in order to win this game. Unfriend people who are constant sources of headaches! Find a new news source! If your source is good but has a few bad apples in there, just make liberal use of the block function.
After all - no one is entitled to space in your head, or to any specific audience.
Use these in good health, enjoy!
