OK, I'll bite..........What's the betting line, Mr. Hill?

Under the deal, formalised in 1987 and revealed in archive documents released by the museum, William Hill pays the museum an annual fee on return for the guarantee its experts will provide ďpositive identificationĒ of the elusive creature.The agreement, which has netted the museum at least £22,000, also covers the Yeti. Wow, you have to be really sure the Monster is real in order to just throw away 22,000 pounds like that. I thought for a second that Mr. Hill was getting the money, until I read that last line, then I changed my opinion of Hill from genius to dunce.
