Jokers

After I read about a guy who collects playing card jokers, I wanted to start a Joker collection myself. (It’s not uncommon for me to appreciate a quirky passion, imagine myself in that person’s place, and then start looking for that item as well. How do you think the Hideous Christmas Sweater collection got started?) But even at 50¢ a deck, his 2,000-joker collection would have cost $1,000, so I gave it up.

However, if anyone wants to send me interesting jokers, the collection can still be considered “open for acquisition.”
