An Arsenal fan with three wives stood to gain another wife and a Toyota in a wager. Instead, he lost his house after betting that the Gunners would beat Manchester United last Sunday.

According to The MirrorHenry Dhabasani, who has five children from the three wives, wagered the deal with friend Rashid Yiga, who offered up his spouse and his car. The contract was reportedly signed into writing by the two men and witnessed by community leaders in the town of Iganga in eastern Uganda.

After Arsenal lost 1-0, several Manchester fans stormed Dhabasani’s two-room house and kicked his family out.

I was imaging that this happened to a person in London with a charming house overlooking the Thames River.  Now I find out that it happened in the town of Iganga in eastern Uganda.  Why should I care if somebody lost his mud hut?

Nice to see that section of the world treats women as humanly as possible.

As pathetic as the entire story is, the last sentence is the worst.
