The 2 and 5 comment was meant to be misdirecting, hence Trick being the category. Additionally, 49 is not a prime number, again meant to be misdirecting. As for the title, it points to the children's song, where a farmer had a dog named Bingo.

Oh, I got it! I haven't played Bingo in ages and forgot all the rules, but I got it somehow.

For those that were wondering, Bingo is a game. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bingo_(U.S.)

The title refers to the children's song:

"There was a farmer and a dog, and Bingo was his name-O;
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O,
and Bingo was his name-O."

However, "a farmer" is sometimes replaced with " a man who" so there's the stem of the confusion.
