Q&A Questions and Answers:
I'm going to stump you yet... maybe. What is the card a cowboy calls "Calamity Jane" and what is a honda you couldn't go cattle driving without?
In poker, a "Calamity Jane" is the queen of spades, named, of course, for Martha Jane Canary (1852-1903), the famed female army teamster, angel of mercy and Wild West Show performer.
A cowboy's honda is not a vehicle, but the small loop on the end of a lasso that the running line goes through.
