Western Word of the Week - Pass the Buck - #WesternWordoftheWeek #WesternWednesdays


Thanks for returning to our Western Word of the Day column. The next few weeks I'm drifting a little bit away from what we think of as truly "western" words to focus on some other vocabulary term that I've learned and wanted to share.

Pass the Buck - to hand something off onto someone else (usually something unpleasant)

Origin of the term: During poker game, a buck knife would be pssed before a player on his turn
