Casino News: The Plain English campaign trying to save ‘two fat ladies’

The Plain English campaign trying to save ‘two fat ladies’

 December 21, 2009, 11:39 am (7 years ago)
The Plain English Campaign is supporting a battle in the UK to save the traditional bingo caller’s cry of ‘two fat ladies’ along with fears that it could be vanished for being sexist.

Approximately 3,000 bingo enthusiasts have by now signed up for their support for the special title for the number 88 at OnlineBingoClub.co.uk. The site’s planners are hoping to gather no less than 10,000 to their cause.

The campaign is the idea of Rob Hutchison, who was concerned about the issue after being aware that the European Union had ordered a remove of everyday ‘gendered’ expressions including ‘right hand man’ and ‘gentlemen’s agreement’. He commented that he is certain that legislators are going to be concerned about bingo hall banter.

“The call of ‘two fat ladies’ in bingo is part of our colloquial speech and our tradition,” cimmented Hutchison.

“It’s better to stick up for before we get some instruction from Brussels stating it’s offensive to overweight players. At the end of the day, fat is fat. We’re living in a PC world these days and I don’t mean the computer store.”
