Hi, gang. It's been a while. Did you miss me?

Previously antedated to 1906,  with references to strip tunk and  
*pajama poker" 1904.

I have found a reference to the exact phrase "Strip poker" that seems to 
be from 1904.

(With apologies to the Tin Woodman)

Must I attend recitations ?
Why can't I cut when I choose?
Why is "strip poker" forbidden?
Why can't a man have his booze?


Google dated to 1904. We all know how unreliable Google dating is, but 
this appears to be the top of the same page.
