Pinochle

Who the hell invented Pinochle? What an F'ed up game that is! I'm fairly sure someone was sitting around high on something and said, "let's make a fairly easy game really messed up by rearranging the values of the cards. A ha, let's make 10 worth more than a King but 9 still be less than a Jack."

WHA?

Okay you are talking to a person who can only play crazy 8's with Uno cards, but...ya.

Jimmy loves that game...but he's never talked me into playing it with him! He's defending it by saying he doesn't think anyone was HIGH when the game was invented. Should I worry about him?

If you could get Jimmy to explain to me the need to have the 10s be worth more - then I'll concede... until then... HIGH! AS! A! KITE!

How about a thank you, Mom for teaching me a new card game and playing it with you? No matter how much it may be f'd up, we did have some fun, didn't we? :)
