Derived from the picture depicted on the King of Hearts face card included in a deck of 52 cards. In most basic decks, the King is shown holding a sword horizontally behind his head, making it look as if he's stabbing himself through the head.

"Oh god, I think I just flunked, I forgot about that friggin test! My parents are gonna kill me! Maybe I should just do the job for them"
"Hey, chill man, it was just a math test. Ask to retake it or something, or deal with it, you're no king of hearts"
