Random information on the term “Jokers”:
The Joker is a playing card found in most modern card decks, as an addition to the standard four suits (clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades). The Joker originated in the United States during the Civil War and was created as a trump card for the game of Euchre. It has since been adopted into many other card games, where it may function as a wild card. The card is unique within the French pack in that it lacks an industry-wide standard appearance.
In the game of Euchre, the highest trump card is the Jack of the trump suit, called the right bower (from the German Bauer or Jack); the second-highest trump, the left bower, is the Jack of the suit of the same color as trumps. The concept appears to have originated from Germany where the games, Juckerspiel and Bester Bube (“Best Bower”) also had right and left bowers. Around 1860, American Euchre players may have devised a higher trump, the “Best Bower”, out of a blank card.
Samuel Hart is credited with printing the first illustrated “Best Bower” card in 1863 with his “Imperial Bower”. Best Bower-type jokers continued to be produced well into the 20th-century. Cards labelled “Joker” began appearing around the late 1860s with some depicting clowns and jesters. It is believed that the term “Joker” comes from Jucker or Juckerspiel, the original German spelling of Euchre. One British manufacturer, Charles Goodall, was manufacturing packs with Jokers for the American market in 1871. The first joker for the domestic British market was sold in 1874. Italians call jokers “Jolly” as many early cards were labelled “Jolly Joker”.
Random information on the term “WAGS”:
Wag’s was a chain of casual dining (or “family”) restaurants owned and operated by Walgreens in the 1970s and 1980s. They were modeled after restaurants like Denny’s, Shoney’s, and Big Boy in that they were mostly 24-hour establishments specializing in inexpensive fares like hamburgers and breakfasts. The chain was based on smaller restaurants that existed in some of the larger Walgreens stores.
Walgreens sold all 91 freestanding stores to Marriott Corporation in 1988, retaining only a few locations that were situated in malls. Soon after this, Marriott began selling off its assets, including Marriott’s Great America. Unable to find a buyer for most of the restaurants, the Wag’s chain was completely out of business by 1991. However, the 30 Wag’s restaurants in the Chicago Metropolitan area were sold to Lunan Corporation (large Arby’s franchisee in Chicago) and run by Lunan Family Restaurants. Over the course of 2 years, each Wag’s restaurant continued to do business as Wag’s until converted to a Shoney’s restaurant. Lunan Family Restaurants went out of business in 1994 and the Shoney’s locations were sold to various chains or individuals. Some locations continue to this day as IHOP restaurants. Marriott itself ceased operations in 1993, when they split into two new entities.
