Leprechaun Gone Wild In Boulder Parking Lot!

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Colorado police said they responded to a report of a man in a leprechaun outfit jumping between cars in a parking lot.

leprechaunBoulder police Sgt. Fred Gerhardt said officers responded to the King Soopers parking lot at about 1 p.m. Wednesday on a report of the leprechaun-suited man darting between cars, pretending to shoot people with his fingers and possibly making obscene gestures, the Boulder Daily Camera reported Thursday."

It`s usually around St. Patrick`s Day that you see leprechauns roaming around causing mischief. I don`t like to see the tiny pranksters around any time of the year. It only takes a beer or two for these troublemakers to get drunk and and start acting the fool.

I`m not surprised that the tiny terror was giving folks the finger, you`d hardly expect a leprechaun to flash the peace sign.

The cops were called because the little freak was acting bizarre. Duh, you would expect a leprechaun to act weird. That`s like a restaurant owner calling the police because Oprah Winfrey has made seven trips to the buffet table.

I hope the police nab the diminutive dolt, or better yet I hope Randy Newman gets his hands on him. The "Short People" songwriter would probably choke the little creep to death.
