I’m Betting on a White Christmas

Paddy Power are being snowed under with bets on a white Christmas.

The Irish betting chain have dropped their odds from 5/1 to 9/4 as meteorologists at Metcheck (they’re looking out the window) predict that the present cold snap could result in a snowfall on Christmas Day.

However, it requires more than a solitary snowflake on your window sill on Christmas morn for bets to be settled.

The bookies are using official weather station data from Dublin Airport.  If 1mm of snow falls between 00.00 and 23.59 on December 25 then you claim enough  money to be in a permanent state of rat-facedness all the way up to New Year’s eve and beyond.

Paddy the Grinch is not dreaming of a white Christmas and could lose up to $100,000 if snows on the 25th.  Our hearts will be broken.

They dropped fifty grand on the day in question in 2004 when Ireland woke up under a blanket of the white stuff – devastating news.

Power’s are also offering odds on which words the Pope will say in English first in his Christmas Urbi et Orbi address from the Vatican next Friday.

God is at 3/1, Holy 4/1 and Saviour 5-1 – the French soccer team are cheating bastards is out at 1000/1 for some reason.

You can also have a flutter on who will sponsor Tiger Woods next. Psssssst, the smart money is on Viagra.

You can also bet on which sponsor will drop him next. Gillette, who also sponsor hand of frog cheat Thierry Henry, are at 9-4 and falling as the RTE1 weather man says so splendidly when referring to weather conditions in Belmullet.

    This is really great information. I have found that there is a lot of misinformation on the internet about health issues therefore I appreciate your great content. I find that regular activity, such as running, is good for your health and will help you keep fit. Personally I found that additionally to keeping physically fit Deer Antler Plus is helping me in the bedroom department. You might have never heard of the latter. So what is it? Velvet Deer Antler is named after the soft, velvet-like covering that deer antlers have before they turn bony. Antlers are organs of bone which regenerate each year from the heads of male deer. In addition to bone, support tissues such as nerves also regenerate. Nerves grow up to 1 cm each day. Deer antler velvet contains many substances including amino acids, minerals, proteins, anti-inflammatory peptides, hormones, gangliosides and glycosaminoglycans, and Insulin-like Growth Factor-1. The composition of velvet supplements depend on the diet of the deer, climate, time of year, age of stag and the various concentrations of substances in different regions of the antler velvet itself. It is said, that taking Deer Antler Plus will make you an unforgettable lover.
