As part of 18-year-old Austin Whaley’s punishment, Kenton District Judge Douglas Grothaus recently ordered the Covington man not to say the word “bingo” for six months.

In a separate development, Judge Grothaus was ordered to refrain from saying the word "cheeseburger" for the next 10 to 20 years. Jeez. The guy has more chins than a violin section.

But what about the little black dog sitting on the porch?

Comment: Is the boy Independence girl still missing?



I hadn't played bingo for 50 years until my sister took me to one of her game nights.
Those people are serious. It might be social, but it is serious social.
Kid's lucky he wasn't trampled by 150 geezers on walkers and amigos.
My sister used a walker.

Anent the concept of "freedom of speech": If he'd shouted "BINGO" in a fire hall, or "Fire" in a Bingo hall, he'd've mebbe been OK ... tho yelling "OUT" @ a closet door might not be the best choice of werdageness ... and Lady MacBeth can prolly still curse "Out, Damned Spot" ... but not @ the ASPCA ...

Whut? Non sequitur is my middle name!


I'm surprised the elderly women didn't beat him to death with their bingo cards.

He could always get off on Keno for a while.

Is it OK for him to say "bingo" when he's in the bathroom?

But he IS required to use the word "Copacabana" in a sentence twice a day.

I think they should ban, "No problem," instead of "you're welcome" when someone says "Thank You."

Hww about using "myself" in a non-reflexive tense as in, "Myself and Dave went to Canada so we could fart." or "Dave and Myself worship Barry Manilow."
