Chicken Poop Bingo

The rules are that players bet on a 54-number grid. Then they wait for a chicken to poop somewhere on the grid. So it sounds more like Chicken Poop Roulette, than Bingo, since you don't wait to get a bingo. According to the Wall Street Journal, the game was invented in a New Orleans bar during the 1980s. There's also a version that involves cow poop.

I've been running around the interweb to see if I could come up with a date when all this silliness kicked in but it seems to be an elusive subject. I do remember, however, using a cow patty for 2ed base over at the farmer's feed lot many a 1960's summer night when sliding into 2ed was NOT an option.

I take it that the cow version uses a larger grid?

A New Orleans bar? I suspect that there might have been a hurricane blowing outside, they couldn't go home and cabin fever was beginning to set in.

There is another variation played in Washington, D.C. - BS Bingo.

But there are way too many players on the field, the sh1t is running deep, and 300,000,000 are losing their shirts!

Perhaps this place in Florida should consider adding this as an attraction ?

How about if they drop eggs on the numbers?
