The Best Leprechauns of All Time


In March 2006, some no-doubt totally sober residents of Crichton, Alabama reported seeing a leprechaun. In a tree. (Refer to the amateur sketch to the left: leprechaun? Or acorn?) So like any responsible news outlet, an NBC affiliate sent a reporter to cover it for what we can only assume was the slowest news day in history. But lucky for us, the result was comedy gold. Some of the Crichton area’s most, um, eccentric citizens were happy to be interviewed. Even if you’ve already seen the report (below), we recommend watching it again; much like Leroy Jenkins, you can’t watch it too many times.
