Bingo!

Bingo is a 'gambling game using cards marked with numbers'. Do you play? The word is sometimes also used as an exclamation in much the same was as 'Eureka' to mean 'I've got it!' Ever say that?

Cherubim

The word cherubim is simply more than one cherub.

The photo is partially appropriate as it shows more than one of us, otherwise it could be said to illustrate whichever word is the antonym of cherubim. Rascals perhaps?

Gross

Gross has a variety of meanings. It can describe something large, outrageous or thick bodied. Twelve dozen of anything are a gross or it can be a total without any deductions.

These tulips are fairly outrageous, but I wouldn't call them gross, would you?
