Bingo Number Nicknames

Bingo appears to be such an easy and fun game.  The fun part comes when Bingo callers use nicknames to call out numbers instead of the actual number in 90-Ball Bingo Games.  All numbers have a nickname or a phrase that is called along with the number to clarify what has been called and to inject an occasional spice into the game.  Nicknames fall into two categories: those with rhyme and those with reason.

Here is a list of those most familiar nicknames in numerical order:
