“People crying about stepping on Legos have never heard of Jacks!”

People (mostly parents) cry about stepping on Legos, but, in an earlier generation (1950s-1970s), people were crying about stepping on Jacks. “People crying about stepping on Legos have never heard of Jacks!” is a saying that as been printed on an image since at least 2017.


Wikipedia: Knucklebones
Knucklebones, also known as Tali, Fivestones, or Jacks, is a game of ancient origin, usually played with five small objects, or ten in the case of jacks. Originally the “knucklebones” (actually the astragalus, a bone in the ankle, or hock) were those of a sheep, which were thrown up and caught in various manners. Modern knucklebones consist of six points, or knobs, projecting from a common base, and are usually made of metal or plastic. The winner is the first player to successfully complete a prescribed series of throws, which, though similar, differ widely in detail.

Having heard of jacks does not reduce how absolutely awful it is to step on legos.
