Poker power

Julie and I had an excellent lunch at Boccacio's on Dame Street today, which was made all the more entertaining by the otherwise ordinary-looking bloke on the next table receiving a call back from Paddy Power. Apparently he'd phoned to complain about some adverts for their online poker service that he'd seen in a public toilet, and made it perfectly clear that he was appalled and outraged by double entendres such as "Get your hands on a big pair tonight" and "The man next to you is watching your hand". He was equally appalled that they had not been cleared by the ASAI because it was not "compulsive" (sic) to have them reviewed prior to being posted, and that they would remain in place to "disgust" other people over the festive period.

You do have to wonder if some people have too much time on their hands...
