“Yo mama is so stupid, she plays solitaire for cash”

Solitaire is a card game for a single player. A popular “yo mama” insult joke is:

“You mama is so stupid, she plays solitaire for cash.”

“Plays solitaire… for cash” was listed under “Expressions for stupidity” on the newsgroup rec.humor on March 11, 1992. The expression is dated because there are several computer solitaire programs and websites.


Wikipedia: Patience (game)
Patience, or solitaire as it is known in the US and Canada, is a genre of card games that can be played by a single player. Patience games can also be played in a head-to-head fashion with the winner selected by a scoring scheme.

In the US, the term solitaire is often used specifically to refer to solitaire with cards, while in other countries solitaire specifically refers to peg solitaire.
