I bet you've had a bit of bad luck losing a bet at some point in your life. But the price for the bad luck you had to pay probably wasn't as big as for the people included in this list. Bored Panda has compiled a series of embarrassing moments experienced by unfortunate gamblers in the middle of their redemption, and the funny stories are both unbelievable and uncomfortable, you'll think twice about entering a wager next time.

From making a public announcement about sucking at fantasy football to transforming their hair into a pineapple, you can't help but admire people who know how to suck it up even when the worst luck strikes and accept the outcome of a funny bet.

Pic 1 looks like a guy who has been down before and he looks warm and welcoming. Pic 2 he looks refreshed and full of vitality and enthusiasm. Both great looks, but makes sense that someone at a low point would rather confide in someone they relate to a little more.
