Charlie Sheen Twitter

Ireland’s largest online bookmaker, Paddy Power, had released odds on how many Twitter followers troubled bad boy actor Charlie Sheen will have amassed by year’s end.  Quite obviously, the oddsmakers had little notion just how big a following he might garner in such a short period of time.

Forget December 31, 2011.  In just a 48 hour period, Sheen managed to rack up over 2 million Twitter followers and counting.

“Paddy Power was still listing UNDER 2 million Twitter followers at 10/1 odds,” noted Payton O’Brien, Senior Editor of the Gambling911.com website.  “You can still bet on under 2 million even though he’s gone over.  They were yet to remove these odds at press time.”

At this rate, they may have to recalculate the OVER.

10 million or OVER is listed with just better than even odds.

“Another record shattered,” the actor, 45, Tweeted Monday. "We gobbled the soft target that was 2.0 mil, like a bag of a troll-house zombie chow."

Each new record broken is being entered into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Now let’s play “What’s My Line”:  Charlie Sheen vs. Muammar Gaddafi – Who Said What?

1. I have defeated this earthworm with my words – imagine what I would have done with my fire-breathing fists

                        Sheen

                        Gaddafi

2. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body

                        Sheen

                        Gaddafi

3. Life without dignity is worthless

                        Sheen

                        Gaddafi

4. I'm extremely old-fashioned, I'm a nobleman, I'm chivalrous

                        Sheen

                        Gaddafi

5. I am like the Queen of England

                        Sheen

                        Gaddafi

6. I am much bigger than any rank, for those who are talking about rank, I am a fighter

                        Sheen

                        Gaddafi

7. Every great movement begins with one man

                        Sheen

                        Gaddafi

8. These resentments, they are the rocket fuel that lives in the tip of my sabre

                        Sheen

                        Gaddafi

9. I woke up at 4am, before dawn. You should be asleep. You’re all tired after a sleepless night

                        Sheen

                        Gaddafi

10. The US commission report on 9/11 was 'an absolute fairytale, a complete work of fiction'

                        Sheen

Basically, nearly all of the above are quotes from Sheen.
