What is Motown (there is a relation between Motown and Jackson Five?) and who is Dolly Parton?

Jesus, I'm horrified you got dinner for 2 right!

Motown is record label (and nickname for Detroit (Motor Town)) which Jackson 5 and other soul legends were on. (J5 was right).

Dolly Parton is a country singer with big jugs, that was in a cheesy film which she sung the theme tune for (oops!).

Forgot the best one - what cards are called German Virgin?!

I'll post answers tomorrow to give others chance to have a go - Jesus Lederer got all the ones he answered right but there are still a few left.

yeah, I was looking at some of these recently for inspiration while designing poker t-shirts... I found a great list of pocket card nicknames ...

The only one I could remember without checking the list that hasn't been done yet is Gay Waiter which is Q-3 (queen with a trey)... but I think they're all on the list alright for anyone who wants to cheat!!

;)

German Virgin - What German words do you know?
Ok, let's try achtung. Could be A-10 but that doesn't make sense.

Gesundheit, hmmm brings to mind something dirty:p like having to do with a german virgin but can't figure a card link.

Alright I give up. What is a german vigin? It probabaly has to do with a Q in it but other than that I don't know.:icon_scra

Anyone will say the 9-9 is the Wayne Gretzski or Phil Hellmuth, never heard German virgin.

Small correction Diablo. It's actually supposed to be Wayne Gretzky (i.e the world's most famous Ice Hockey player). The 9-9 reference doesn't mean anything to a European, which is why I presume other names develop.

If anyone doesn't get the German Virgin one, the German word for no is Nein.

How about "Oil" - it's a bit obtuse, think laterally!
