Has Paddy Power lost it?

According to the nerds over at Reddit (yes, that bastion of truth and certain knowledge) the image below is real. If this proves to be the case, and those initials turn out to belong to the bookies we’re all imagining they do, then Paddy Power may at last have overreached.

The fact is that if you knew that every time you clicked the link that says “Yes, I am over 21″ you were added to a government watchlist, odds are you’d stop watching.
