shock: Bookies Gored!

Ireland's top bookmaker, Paddy Power, paid out more than $13,500 to people who bet that Al Gore would be arrested. Trouble was, the company neglected to specify which one.

Al Gore snr was rated as a 14-1 outsider in a list of American celebrities likely to be arrested next. However his son Al Gore III, 24, was charged with possession of marijuana and other drugs on Wednesday.

Paddy Power paid out because it didn't specify which Gore it meant!
