Online Poker (Subdirectly) in Pop Culture

Funny … have The Simpsons on in the background, and they just opened the show with a bit where Rev. Lovejoy had to explain to his religious superior why the church’s credit card was declined … he came up with a dismissive explanation of a security hold put on it by the bank after his wife joined an offshore poker club.

(The subtextual punchline being that they were talking about fireplace pokers.)

That Sam Simon … so nice of him to embed a joke just for us.

Ha-ha-ish.
