March 17th is upon us again and that only means one thing (no not getting your stomach pumped at the hospital because you drank too much Jameson, that would be March 18th), St. Patrick's Day is here. As I am half Irish (which half I will not reveal) I've celebrated it for many years and am quite familiar with Irish lore. One of my favorites has always been the Leprechaun and it's pot of gold. You would think being now in the 21st Century, this legend would die but apparently not as one was reportedly seen in a tree. The following video is a newscast on the supposed sighting.
Ok so I know this video is old and most likely a joke, but I love it. And yes I posted it last St. Patrick's Day and will post it again next year so just deal with it. There are so many things that I love about this video, but if I had to choose one it would have to be the artist's rendering. That alone is worth a pot of gold.
As luck would have it (yes I went there) I was able to find a follow up story to this where the residents still claim to see the Leprechaun. I'll keep my opinion to myself, but I really want to know what the hell these people saw.
So from us at Weird Fresno, happy St. Patrick's Day. Éirinn go brách!!!
