The starting hand of J-5 in poker. It is okay to raise big or even go all-in with the fortune teller due to its mystical properties.
Origin: One weekend X was playing poker in Atlantic City and was seated next to an older Asian woman. She whispered into X's ear that she always played the Jackson Five in any hand because it meant good luck and fortune were on the way. X interpreted the "Jackson Five" to be Jack and Five and thus the fortune teller was born.
"Man what the hell were you in that pot for? You don't even have a pair"
"Yeah...but I got the Fortune Teller....Jack and Five."
