A good Scrabble word for a sweetheart.

Unfortunately, no one has ever called their significant other a jo, unless that persons name was actually Joe or Joanna.

WTF, I'll believe almost anything when I'm trying to unload a stinking "J" late in the game.

A jo staff or jo stick is a weapon of hardwood developed in the far east by the martial arts. It is 4 feet long and can be used one or two handed. A bo or quarterstaff is 6' long, and an escrima stick is 2' long.

Jo (?), n.; pl. Joes (#). [Etymol. uncertain.]

A sweetheart; a darling.

[Scot.]

Burns.
