Bunny Bingo Returns to St.Boni

Bunny Bingo returnes to St.Boni
An ancient ritual of Spring.
Bunny Bingo.
From the History of Bingo:
"....the game reached North America in 1929, it became known as "beano". It was first played at a carnival near Atlanta, Georgia. New York toy salesman Edwin S. Lowe renamed it "bingo" after he overheard someone accidentally yell "bingo" instead of "beano". He hired a Columbia University math professor, Carl Leffler, to help him increase the number of combinations in bingo cards. By 1930, Leffler had invented 6,000 different bingo cards. [It is said that Leffler then went insane.] "
