O: why is one of the cards a suicide king?

sydneylove, Aug 26, 2010, 12 am

Hm, yeah, that a goood question...

YOu mean that one holding the sword/dagger at its head? Maybe it orginates from legend? Or Tarot cards... :B

because Apples, starts, pentagons and Drapes wouldn't have been as catchy

Actually from what I've read about the evolution of the Tarot cards, I'm pretty sure that the suits correspond to the four elements? (Though the correlation could have been made post-fact, I suppose.) In theory, Wands/Air/Clubs, Swords/Fire/Spades, Cups/Water/Hearts, Coins/Earth/Diamonds - though depending on the source, they may tell you that swords are air and wands are fire. There's some conflict on that one.

spade is a sword of a soldier, the club was the weapon of war, diamonds was the money of it all, heart was the source of the fight.

all from old world and yeh tarot

Because green clovers, pink hearts, purple diamonds, and yellow moons were destined to become marshmallow shapes in Lucky Charms cereal.

But the moons are blue. Like, to play off of "once in a blue moon"? I don't think there are diamonds, but there are purple horse shoes.

Totally off on a tangent but Lucky Charms (tm)has had a variety of different shapes and colour combination.

The first boxes of Lucky Charms cereal contained marshmallows in the shapes of pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, and green clovers.

Over the years there have been, blue diamonds, purple horse shoes, red balloons, rainbows, pots of gold, hats, shooting stars, hour glasses, blue moons, keys?, whales, a pine tree?, balloon+star ... uhm ... sugar coma time ...

They're Magically Delicious!

This is for French-style playing cards, of course C: For example, German cards can be Acorns, Shields, Bells, and Flowers

Suicide king?... I always thought that he was just swinging his sword.

The King of Hearts used to carry an axe over his shoulder, but over centuries the axe's head vanished, leaving just the shaft which appears to be sticking into his head. His moustache was a casualty of the same poor workmanship: he's the only king without one.

the 4 symbols in playing cards are to represent the 4 seasons (I just read it somewhere)
