Hard As a What


King of Diamonds

A driver is a king on a vinyl bucket-seat throne, changing direction with the turn of a wheel,
changing the climate with a flick of the button, changing the music with the switch of a dial.

- Andrew H Malcolm

After the game the King and the Two go back in the same box.

- Italian proverb

Historically, the King of Diamonds represents Julius Caesar.
