jidhir

Audio with Theyab's pronunciation






The jidhir of today's word is the red Joker in a pack of playing cards (the Kuwaitis call playing cards "janjifah." In neighbouring Saudi Arabia, cards are referred to as warag or "papers."

Intriguingly, the black Joker is referred to in Kuwaiti as maykar.

So if some unfortunate person is described as jaykar, a response might be:
"jaykar wala maykar?
