Irish Bookie Lays Odds on Cliches in Obama's Speech

( – Irish bookmaker Paddy Power says Sen. Barrack Obama (D-Ill.) is the undisputed master of cliches this election season, and his well-known mantra -- “Change” – is sure to show up in Thursday’s speech when he accepts the Democratic presidential nomination. The odds are 10 to 1 it will, the Dublin-based oddsmaker said.

Which of the following cliches will Obama mention first during his acceptance speech on Thursday?

6 to 1 -- "I'm fired up"

12 to 1 -- “I'd like to thank my wife”; “as I stand here today”; “fundamental belief”; “defining moment”; and “God Bless America.”

14 to 1 -- “let me be clear”; “war on terror”; “politics of hope”; and “common purpose.”

16 to 1 -- “crossroads of history”; “I have a dream”; “pursuit of happiness”; “I'm fired up” and “building a better America.”

25 to 1 -- “we cannot lose hope”

100 to 1 -- “an eye for an eye only winds up making the whole world blind.”
Maybe that what Paddy Power says, but here's The Cavemens odds on what may be said tonight at his acceptance speech; 100 to 1 -- "Getchya freak on."

90 to 1 -- "...I have to check with Mr. Biden first."

80 to 1 -- "Do these pants make me look fat?"

60 to 1 -- "Workers of the world, UNITE!"

50 to 1 -- "Me so horny."

33 to 1 -- I... could... go... all... the... WAAAAAAAYYYYYY!"

25 to 1 -- "What, me worry?"

20 to 1 -- "I did not have sex... with that woman."

15 to 1 -- "Huh? I am not a bum. I'm a jerk. I once had wealth, power, and the love of a beautiful woman. Now I only have two things: my friends and... uh... my thermos. Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi."

10 to 1 -- "I want to thank my Lord and Savior, the Prohpet Moha.... I mean Jesus Christ."

4 to 1 -- "Ummmmmm..."

2 to 1 -- "Hook a Nigga up!"
