A bet's a bet: Teen pays off Cubs World Series wager by having tooth removed in epic fashion

Posted at 4:36 PM, Nov 15, 2016

A kid in Indiana made a bet that would have been safe in any of the past 107 years. 

But this is the year 2016, and as we all know, crazy stuff happens in the year 2016.

C.J. Kavadas' bet with his friends went like this: If the Chicago Cubs win the World Series, you can remove one of my teeth.

Well... here we are, in a world where the Cubs are world champions. And because of that, we also live in a world where an Indiana teen has one less tooth in his mouth.

Of course, the kids filmed the moment the bet was paid off, and of course, it was paid off in over-the-top fashion: by having one of his buddies throw a football attached to his tooth by a string.

"I'm not a liar. That's not what I'm about. Not now. Not ever!" Kavadas proudly exclaimed moments before he paid off the bet.

Observe. (Or not. But the video isn't graphic, and you've come this far, so...)
