I saw some playing cards lying in the snow. What did they represent?

* a viral marketing campaign for a Springsteen concert in his Magic tour?

* Heath Ledger, shining down on us, in his latest (last?) role as The Joker - plugging the 2008 summer release The Dark Knight?

* just some kid that lost his cards?

Whatever is the case - and I do agree that most evidence leads to the last option - it's symbolic. At least 5 playing cards in the snow. And unless someone comes to claim 'em, a deck will be incomplete. Permanently. It's almost a metaphor of life itself : Life's a game. Better play along.
