HOBBITS CHANGE ALL BETS
Tiny humans are weighed in - what odds Yeti, Nessie, aliens?
"Following the discovery of a previously unknown species of human being, bookmakers William Hill have issued odds for the discovery of other unlikely creatures or beings. "Mindful that at any given time proof of the existence of either the Loch Ness Monster or intelligent extra-terrestrial life could cost us over one million pounds, we have to be cautious," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe, "Fortunately for us we have no record of any bets being taken for the discovery of a new species of human being confirmed.
Other 'Odd' Odds you can bet on: 500/1 that conclusive proof of the current existence of the LOCH NESS MONSTER will be authenticated by the Natural History Museum on or before December 31, 2005. 250/1 that conclusive proof of the curent existence of the YETI will be authenticated by the Natural History Museum on or before Dec 31, 2005. 100/1 that the UK Prime Minister will confirm the current existence of intelligent ALIEN LIFE of extra-terrestrial origin on or before Dec 31, 2005."
