Irish bookmaker Paddy Power is used to making outrageous bets. In 2008, they famously placed odds at 12/1 that President Obama would not "finish his term," wording many people saw as a thinly veiled euphemism for assassination.
Among the more savory bets offered in the past were odds on how many times Obama and Bush would say the word "God" during their respective inauguration addresses (Bush: 3, Obama: 1) and what the Obamas would name their first puppy. (*Psst* — it was Bo.)
Now, Paddy Power bet-makers are rolling up their sleeves and wading into the waters of bad taste again.
