    In England and America, the jack in playing cards was previously known as the knave — named for ‘a male servant in the royal household with no specific role or skill’. This was before ‘knave’ became a derogatory term (which was due to the rowdy, swaggering, bullying behavior that many knaves exhibited). ‘Jack’ was the term used in England and America to refer to a man in general terms (e.g., jack-of-all-trades, jack-in-the-box). Jack became the official card name in 1864 when American cardmaker Samuel Hart published a deck using “J” instead of “Kn” to designate the lowest-ranking court card. It caught on because it was much less confusing (Kn for knave, K for king).

    My Jack was my Jack of Hearts, though he did give me a diamond.

    Damn Jacks! In poker they say there are 3 ways to play pocket Jacks.

    And they are all wrong.

    No big deal, I do all that. Except I don’t zoom, I run to work while the baby is napping.
