Place your bets on how Charlie Sheen will exit ‘Men’

Charlie Sheen will be written off “Two and Half Men” by having Charlie Harper drive his car off a cliff — at least if you believe a wager offered by an Irish bookmaker.
Paddy Power, which frequently offers so-called novelty bets about pop-culture events, has placed the odds of such an exit in the season nine premiere at 11-10.
Most of Paddy Power’s speculations about how Charlie Harper’s absence will be dealt with in the first episode are ludicrous, and betting on them would be like throwing your money into a fire and dancing around it in glee as it burns.
But others make some sense for inveterate risk-takers. Among the choices that seem completely plausible: “Jail sentence” (25-1), “join a monastery” (50-1) and “gets lost at sea” (66/1).
Not listed is “Gets kidnapped by Somali pirates and forced to write jingles for a pro-Somali pirate ad campaign,” which is clearly how Charlie Harper will be written out of the program, at least in our perfect scenario.
Last week, Paddy Power was giving odds on who Sheen’s “Anger Management” sitcom co-star will turn out to be, but has since taken down that bet.
