Tossing Broads Manuscript (Tony Giorgio)
In the 19th Century Victorian British underworld slang, playing-cards were called broads. Playing a game of cards was known as “Spreading Broads.” Cheating at cards was called “broading” and a card sharp was called a “broadsman”. Tossing Broads is a gaffed game that cannot be beat; hence, the broad tosser plays a gaffed joint, or flat joint. A Three-Card Monte game with the prevailing myth is that the broad tossers used a queen as the winning card, and would say “Find the Lady.”
