How many of you play cards with the joker in the deck as you shuffle? I bet some of you will start doing so after today ;-) Did you know that jokers are wish omens? But you need to be clever about it, no surprise. When you are playing cards, if you are dealt a joker, quietly stroke it without anyone spotting you, and make your wish! Happy wishing friends!
A joker card from the Watson Bros. Co. Inc. Bonded Transportation publicity playing card deck. The artwork on the front seems to be from the 1950′s. Some research put this company in Minnesota around then but I’ve also found earlier mentions dating back to the 30′s.
