I went out with a Canadian girl for a while and when she first came to Cork she commented on how cool it was that we had so many bookmakers around the place, it must be a really arty city.

It killed me to break it to her that these are actually places where unemployed lads go to throw away the child's pocket money when the wives think they are at work.
