What are the Funniest Poker Hand Names?

For Example, J4 is called a flat tire, because what do you need a jack for?

In live poker A4 can trick us into thinking we have AA at first, so they are called Plane Crash and Fake Aces.

Why is 74 called that?
The seven visually resembles the eagle's paw raised in the attack, and the four with its hump resembles the eagle's nose. Who came up with the idea is not known, but this name is often used.

Woolworths is a name I found funny. This name is for T5 because apparently Woolworths was a popular "Nickel and Dime store" back in the day :D

Some of the pocket pair hands I find funny though:

22 Ducks, 33 Crabs, 44 Sailboats, 77 Hockey sticks, and TT being TnT :D

AK called "Big Slick" is an honorable mention to me on the list of funny names ;)

p.s. Anyone know what 55 or 66 are called? I don't know a name for these, but all other pocket pairs I know at least one slang term for.

Never heard of Flat Tire for J4, but it is comical ;)

lol You'd have to be up really late at night or drunk to think A4 is AA. In name, it looks similar, but don't forget the "drawing" on the card. Take diamonds for example. Ace of diamonds shouldn't have 4 diamonds in the center xD :rolleyes:

I still find the naming funny though. I don't think too many people actually confuse this with AA in a game, but close enough to make a good story xD


I don't understand this one...what am I missing here? Heinz like the Ketchup company? Or am I completely off on this one?

Cool. btw, I was surprisingly close with my Heinz guess. It is named this because Heinz company had 57 condiment varieties.
